Hey, I've got most the parts ready to put my truck back together, but I've been looking for torque converter. It has been suggested to me to get a custom converter, but I'm not sure what the prices are like and I'm not sure who to talk to. I was considerign the TCI breakaway for my truck, but I want to make sure it stays driveable. Here is my setup:

1972 F100 2WD 460
Wiend Stealth Intake
D0VE Heads
Accel Dist.
Roller Rockers
Shorty Headers w/ 2 1/2" dual exhaust
Comp Energy Cam - 272 Adv Duration
10:1 comp
3.50 gears (will get posi unit)
31" tires
Truck weighs roughly 4500 lbs.

I want to maintain some driveability, but performance is in mind. Any suggestions?

I don't like TCI converters. I just removed mine and replaced it with an Edge converter.

Would the break-away drive on the street OK?

TCI is not good. Poor quality. I'd go with Edge.
