A good quality 11" converter should run around 200.00. Other than a loosened stock converter, there's really no inexpensive way to build durability into a converter for performance use.

To me, given the trouble involved with replacing a bad converter, I'd rather spend the money for decent quality stuff...especially if I'm gonna lean on it..

I switched to a Flamethrower coil thinking it was...
I'm looking at adding set of headers and running a Y pipe to a 2" single exhaust system from Classic inlines. Later on I may put a different cam in but first things first. I'm not looking for a beast I6 200, just a drivable car with a little more power than stock. With that said will I notice...
'66 Steering box removal - from BELOW?
Forgive me if this has been gone over before, but I can't find it in a search. I know most folks remove their steering boxes from above...but the way my car is set up, it seems easier to remove it from below (I have LT headers that are a major pain to...
