Anybody else having a problem getting their converter repaired? TCI has had my converter for 37 days-all it needed was bearings by their inspection -this is just nuts so slow last time in it was 8 days turn around in April-whaaa! I wanna race

Probably a problem getting people to do the work.

We could double our service billing if we had the people to do the work.

Its partly my fault for not sending in my BTE backup sooner after it lost the sprag-so plan ahead if you have converter issues

Depends who you send it too, TSI , FTI are two who are business as usual, I know of. Or PTC, none of these people mess around.

I usually ask how long.

I tried to get TCI on the phone not to long ago for some info on a used converter we bought, without any luck on several attempts. I definitely would not send anything to anyone I couldn't get on the phone, If I wanted to race.

Not bashing TCI, they're a good outfit but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

How is it that 2 converters are in for "repair" for the same combo at the same time. Me thinks the OP sent them in to be freshened/rebuilt which you don't do unless making a stall change and even then I would advise against sending back a good converter. My advice would be just buy another.

As usual Ed you take the devils side on every issue you can to try to stir B.S. I said I waited to long to send in the BTE as it is not a converter I was very happy with its performance and no sent the TCI in because I was looking for a problem on why my car slowed so just piss-off jerk -oh ya congrats to Kyle on his win.

I argue that you dont need 2 identical converters, you need 1 that is 200-300 looser than the other. That way, you have a good weather converter and a swamp azz converter. But hey, im not known as the sharpest tool in the shed

I agree but your best chance of getting that from most converter builders is to tell them you want an identical converter to what you currently have. Laughing Hard
