Has anyone installed an aftermarket torque converter in the 05/06 auto GT? I am looking at the TCI unit, 3000 stall converter. But at $489 plus install, I was just curious if anyone out there has any feedback. I know when I ran my 67 mustang years ago, the 8 inch 4500 converter made a HUGE difference. But at the track, I noticed my 05 already stalls to 2200, so.......

Anyway, best 60' I have is only a 1.79 with 4.10's. Anyone out there in the 1.6's? I have a track nearby that has excellent track prep, so traction has not been a problem so far...however I think some m/t 275 drag radials are in order if I get the converter.

Wow! That's a fast S197 you got! Th9ose times with OM tires?

MD put a 'prototype' converter in D's car and I think it took about .5 sec of the 1/4. OM tires, ProChamber and I can't remember if the JLT and tune was on, low 13's!

I think with a converter and some MT's you might break through the 12's! Awesome!!

My tires are 255/45/18's, so not OEM but they are definitely street tires. My goal is getting into the 11's. I am thinking converter with m/t drag radials may do it, and if not I could step up from the 100hp setting to the 125hp setting and see what happens....

Oh, and N2O makes everything fast....:winks the times listed in my sig are on the juice...
