mustang and mark8 TC are the same... 2400ish stall. Marauder TC stalls a little higher...2600-2700 i think. Either one would be great...whichever is cheaper

Just make sure you get the converter seated all the way in the tranny before you re-install the tranny, right Wes????????? It's a real bite in the butt to get everything put back in, and try to rotate the engine to put the converter to flywheel bolts back in, and realize what you did. Makes for a bad day.

Both are $150 from Dan Newman, and $50 for the flexplate (fits both)

This was last weeks prices.

Funny you mention that Rich95XR7 we installed the mark VIII tranny this past weekend and after numerous attempts of mating the trans to the flexplate we finally found out it wasnt all the way in the pump gear. It made for a real long day.

2W3Z-7902-AARM ~> Marauder / Mach 1 Torque Converter ~> $215.98 (list price)
Core Charge $ 50.00
F3LY-6375-A ~>Mark 8 Flex Plate ~> $ 71.38 (list price)
F6AZ-6441-AA ~> Torque Converter Nuts ~>$ 1.05 (list price)
The prices are less if you are a member of TCCoA, so do contact Dan Newman.

I like my Mach 1 / Marauder converter.

Yeah, I guess practice makes perfect, and the fact that we had to be out of the shop in 2 hours helped speed things up
