TCI's are SOOOOO bad. I would run 9's stock internal if it weren't for this horribly inefficient converter.
Oh, and the converter also ran off with my wife and killed my dog.
I don't know why people bash them so much. I think like anything else, if you don't do the supporting mods, you reap the consequences.
I'm not saying that Yank, Fuddle, Precision and the like don't make good converters, if not superior converters, but for my budget the TCI was just fine and dandy.
I put in my SSF 4000 at about 75,000 miles, the car just turned over 84,000 yesterday, and I have had zero
problems. This is with probably 75 track passes and repeated floggings on the street. Now I do have the following: 24k cooler, deep pan, shift kit, and a tune for the converter. I also know two guys locally with the EXACT same converter and gears who have no problems.
How would I get on the SI List if my converter sucked? Oh, and the car is going deeper this year, I plan to hit 11.4x's or 11.3x's by the fall, all on a TCI converter.
I'm not a TCI nutswinger, but I get tired of hearing how their converters are complete pieces of crap, I've had nothing but good to say about mine.
