Im on a tight budget and really dont want to spend more than 500 dollars on a converter and i narrowed it down to either a TCI for 450 dollars or a Yank for 525 dollars (willing to spend the extra 25 dollars on this one). I want to know what is the difference between the two cause i cant make up my mind.

That's hard to say since there are dozens of Yank
versions (though the $525 I expect narrows it right
The TCI 3000 is an efficient, streetable, moderate
performance converter with a known weakness in
the lockup clutch. It's a lower stall speed than most
people stay with.
Yank, you'd have to offer up more of an idea about
which one. And what your motor setup is, and how
much you favor strip / racing / street manners in
proportion. See significantly less complaining about
Yank clutch durability. Efficiency should be about on
a par in the 3200-3500 range, less as you go up from
there. Harder hitting most likely which unless you are
running 2.73s or slicks, you probably don't need.
So which Yank and what kind of car?
