Sucks to go that far and have something like that crap out on you. Did you feel it coming or did it just let go ?

Re: Damn Converter

never felt a thing. thought the turbo wouldnt light at first so i brought the spray on WAY early, the didnt help, and JW said, "its definitely the stator again" same exact prob as in houston. cant say i didnt try though, made 5 passes w/ spray on it and drove it home 450 miles from utah.

Re: Damn Converter

Mike, is that a TCS converter your running? If so I puked one of those a couple months ago. I destroyed the lockup clutches and cracked the forward drum in the trans. Rusty tightened up the stall some more and so far the new one has been great.
