    I hate to say this: but I'm kinda leaning this way going forward myself. I love manuals but for consistency you just can't beat a proper auto. Fwiw I've heard good things about UCC converters.

    i can get a good deal from Alan@ dirty dog since he does converters for the shop i use to work for...

    but we have a good relationship with Steve@pats custom converters also since he did the converters for the nitrous car.

    kinda comes down to cost and all that though. what ever it is. it will be custom! the Cam may be coming out also this winter i need to see how my shoulder looks at the Dr after new years... if i need surgery its going to but a hit in my budget for the car to say the least.

    Im guessing this is going to be more track then street?...I just took out a Art Car c4 rated at 1000 HP reverse manual VB...UCC 3500 stall convertor..I hated it...my car does see more street then track tho..Went back to a Lentech AOD...WAY WAY WAY better now.....for all out racing you cant beat a C4 but for street/strip i will always have an OD trans....

    They way this is set up from my understanding its a manual VB...no TV cable...no pressure to set..i shift it 1st 2nd 3rd...then when i want to put it into OD i turn off the power to trans it goes into OD....when i slow down i have to turn the power back on to take it out of OD..its an older Lentech VB....installed...with a Stallion PI top of line 3500 stall lockup

    I think I just found what shifter I am going to use in the race car! Looks nice and the price is reasonable.

    Is it a pain having to turn the power on and off or is it something that just becomes second nature? What controls the power is it a momentary switch or on/off toggle type deal?

    I was mad because the converter in my '89 is so loose, I thought I was spinning 4000+ in 3rd in a 45 zone. So the other day I cruised to the gym at 50mph with the LCD controller hooked up to the ECU. (because I don't have a tach)

    It was actually only 2100rpms. :D The car is just so loud it FEELS like it's turning high rpms.
