What kind of power would this be good for? Do they stall to build sheet?

If you want a convertor built to exactly what you need you should dyno you motor and provide the sheets to the builder, that gets you a realy good chance of getting it absolulty right the first time.

IMO the Convertor you have shown is something intended for something milder say 500-550 hp street strip stuff.

IMO it would need some upgrades for more than that.

P.S. PTC is a fine company and builds quality convertors. Also check-out Lenny at Ultimate, he offers some great products too.

Ok thats what I figured. Thanks for the reply. Any idea of Whst a converter that will hold 900~flywheel horsepower on nitrous would run through him? Glide with turbo splines if it makes a difference on price.

A quality convertor is going to run you around $8-900+ no matter who you get it from. Just be completely honest about what your combination is so they can get it right,

14:1 557 alum scj's solid roller Vic 4150 qft carb on e85. Then probably start with an 82 jet and work up to a no jet tune thru a big shot kit. Should br close to over 900hp at flywheel right?

You need to get something built for the combo your describing.

Give them a call and get a recommendation and then give Lenny at ultimate a call and get his. Then pick the one you like they are both quality parts

Lenny is the bomb, I hear good stuff from PTC also, I know Blake uses them and his stuff hauls ass. Either way you need to contact them and discuss your build, dont buy off the shelf.

another thing you should figure out is the motor vs spray.a converter for your combo n/a aint the same as with spray.its tuff to have it both ways but a tighter converter for spray is more user friendly with a BBF,lota TQ! Very Happy
