i've heard a couple of people talk about problems with "off the shelf" stall convertors like TCI, or B&M whats the deal? Are they really that bad to where you only need to buy one built to your needs. The car I'm about to purcahse has an AOD and want to install a transgo shift kit and a TCI stall.

Here's the deal. If it's a street car or street/strip car a TCI or B&M will work okay. They are poor quality in my opinion, but some people like them. I think the reason that they sell so well is because they have the Jeg's/Summit market wrapped up. That doesn't make them the best. It doesn't even make them good. It just makes them affordable and easy to get since they are marketed so well. There are better quality companies out there than can sell you a good converter at an affordable price. You just have to call them and order. They are not Jeg's and Summit off the shelf, one size fit's all converters.

transmission specialties. hughes, bte to name a few there are alot more. i ran a tci street fighter in my footbrake car for years. worked well untill i got down to the 10's with a #3500 car and then went south very quick. custom built run in the $600 range but imho are well worth the price.
