Comp Cams 268XE lift .477/.480 duration 268/280, Performer RPM intake. Any of you guys ever use one of TCI's converters? Have any complaints?

Thanks

You don't have enough cam or power output to warrant such a converter, this is just a waste of money.

Hey thanks for the advice 3 years too late. Check out the power band on that cam 2400 stall isn't a waste of money. I had to buy a torque converter anyway and TCI is far from pricey.

I had a breakaway in my car for years
loved it.

I might suggest calling TCI and they will help you choose whats right for your combo.
