just been looking into ordering a Torque Converter from america.the level one TC you have to send your stock TC to america to get it upgraded. i did not fancy doing that. wanted to buy one outright to save the messing about. the level 2 is all in one price. but it is a 4000 rpm stall and with only having stock turbos think it might be overkill. dont want car to drive like a bag of nuts n bolts. just dont know how streetable they are. only person i have heard has one is leon. they are supposed to be a good mod for your car.
does anyone have any experience of been in a car with an upgraded TC. just dont want to buy the wrong one. got a private message from an american with a t66 and PRECISION INDUSTRIES TC 3500-3600 rpm stall. he was saying its one of his best mods he has done. think i will go with one of them. just waiting for a reply.
leon does level 10 make not heard of them or how good they are. just trying to decide what to do for best.
