    3F886182-90D9-4D96-B3A9-C0E1CD942247.png Hughes converter, 350/th350.
    3000 rpm, 10 inch.
    Almost 10 years, no problem.

    Another vote for Coan and PTC. Don't buy a cheap one, it won't do everything it's supposed to do. If you're street driving it, you don't want to give up street manors, drivability and efficiency. I personally wouldn't get an 8" converter re-stalled for street use. My Coan is 15 years old, and never an issue. We've had them both (Coan and PTC) re-stalled for different power adders and were always just what we wanted. They both want everything but a DNA sample, and they build quality products to suit your needs. You get what you pay for.

    For the street 8" even a "tight one" will be way too loose and generate too much heat(slippage generates heat).

    I had Mike at Freak show performance spec out a converter for my kids th350... it’s nice and tight to drive normal and flashes within 100 rpm where I wanted..@3800 and his price was really reasonable. It’s held up great behind his 450ish horse 6.0L for two years now..

    Thanks, not going to get another 8". It was in the car when I bought it, I want enough to help with stopping pushing when stopped in drive. I'm going to call Coan and freak show with engine specs.

    +1^. Call David Husek. Don’t use his contact page, just call him at ‭+1 (516) 860-5287‬. He custom builds converters for your application with the Th200-4R. I had a Vigilante 9.5” and thought it was great. I installed one of David’s and it was night and day better. Tell him Jeff from PA told you to call him. Great guy to deal with.

    A Pontiac buddy had Coan build him a tight 10" that he really likes.

    I know they also build a lot for the NHRA Stocker guys.
