DirtyD0g's converters are far better than anything you're going to find on Ebay.
The real problem with replacing just the converter comes in when you have an old transmission that is full of crap that will contaminate your new converter; once the system is contaminated, you can't get all the fragments out.
I'd find a newer transmission in a JY, jmod it, and replace the tranny and converter at the same time; then you only have the lines and cooler to flush all the crap out of.
If you ask nicely Alan might sell you a good cooler, and 3/8" lines...
I bought my latest 02 Gran Marquis transmission for $450; it had ~40k miles on it, but is still way better than my old one. My first two had 12k and 22k miles...
Those are getting rare. But the 02 is a better core for a rebuild, and has most of the parts that get added in Jerry's thesis.
whats your opinion?
Do you think a man that builds race transmissions is going to recommend a $300 "new" Ebay transmission? Or comment on a (probably lame) competitor?
