I agree to use the TH350 as long as it's good, no need to start over w/another weak-kneed TH200.

Not having lock up really isn't a biggie, IMO. And it makes the installation just that much easier, because if it was a TH350C, you'd want to wire up and use the TCC. Running w/o the TCC on the highway will cost you a little mileage over a TH350 w/o lockup due to the looser TH350C torque converter stall when not locked up. The difference is about 200-250 RPM depending on the specific app.
