    Just lost my converter. Probibly took out the trans too. Any suggestions on upgrades or changes I should make when I get it rebuilt?

    Find out the cost for a good rebuild and new Torque Converter. You might be better off going with a unit from www.thetrannydoctor.com. Whatever you decide to do, hope it works out. If you don't already have one, a good auxillary cooler (to compliment the one already in the radiator) and a tranny temp guage are both cheap (considering the cost of a toasted tranny) insurance.

    I just had mine rebuild and i had a shift kit put in it. It really made a difference.
