Thanks Derek! Finally on the downward slope so we're sprinting to the finish. I just looked at the flight schedule before i left work and I already see new names on it from my replacement unit so that's pretty exciting. I'm a scout helicopter pilot in the army, so that should make my previous statement make more sense. Anyway, thanks for the advice on my car and I'll be sure to update once I get it all buttoned up! But back to topic, I hope your new tranny rocks dauntless! Let us know which converter you go with. I'm leaning towards one from JW or the 9.5" that Lonnie makes. They are both similarly priced so I don't know which one yet. Like you said, tranny and converter from the same source has its bennies, yet the th350 converter I got from JW has been flawless as well.
