Hmm, surprised to see all of the bad feed back about PTC. I have used & ran them all. Only bad luck I ever had was a 8" TCI got trashed one time on the street. I am on my 4th PTC now.(4 different cars). One has been in my Charger for 10 years or so 10" 3800. Current new convertor is in my Challenger to be tested this summer. It almost always seems like they all have to tighten them or loosen them 500 +/- RPM or so at least once these days???

Yes there is two Dynamic s as Luppo's Dynamic that I use is in Newark Del I believe. I like them alot. Also Turbo Action has always been a top notch converter. Ron

One of the best units I ever put in a Mopar was a Lupo
Some of the worst I have ever had were Lupo

PTC hit or miss

Turbo Action finest quality work always seem too tight and way too $$ on simple fresh up etc ( but...I would sleep with an original J under my pillow if I could find a new one) When we all had stock 440 stuff with a 590 or 650 solid these were the Dream Mopar units and always will be IMO for a footbrake car

I have been very happy with Cameron at Torque Converter Services in Columbia SC Cheap to get one opened and worked--FAST as can be turn around--as much skill and know how as any shop--well equipped shop and he really listens did I say VERY reasonable $$$

Neal Chance, he makes some real good take apart high end converters as well as regular race converters for high HP applications. scope
