Board rules do not permit links to non-sponsor competitors.
Please google them ;)

They do have a really simple website but I can't seem to find it now. I recieved an email from them last week and this is the address that it came from, DGSNEATH@aol.com . Maybe you should shoot them an email.
Edit: whoops, I must have missed ULTIMATEORANGESS' post when looking for the email address. :)

just to let you know me and alot of others have had problems with MW converters leaking.
perhaps they fixed this defect but apparently it was a common occurence.
because of the price i paid its an ok TC but i found out why others like vig. and yank cost more money.
MW did take care of my leak under warranty and its been fine for now.

The first converter I bought was a Midwest. Since then I have moved on to a better converter.

Their website needs updated badly. HPA used to be the major distributer of Midwest Converters. Now, I believe Nasty N8 is the only distributer.

I had two midwest converters, both with 3000 stall w/ 2.5str. When I had a problem with my first one their customer service was second to none and they stood behind their product. After I :bomb: the second one (sprag failure) and it caused catastrophic transmission failure, I had a custom one built through the guy that reBUILT my tranny. Basically, they work real well until you put some power through em with sticky tires. Times with it are in my sig. I haven't run with the new tranny and converter yet to update the sig.

Wow, you broke a sprag with those mods. That's crazy. I still running their stock basic sprag with no issues what so ever, I will probrably upgrade though. Seems to be alot of hit or miss cases in the LS1 world, I know thta there are alot of SBC/BBC racers that swear by them though.
