I am going to look at buying a new torque converter just whenever some time down the road. Hughes is one of the few brands that have powerglide converters at Jegs.:rolleyes: Are their products okay? I will probably be looking at 2000-2200 or so stall eventually. Maybe after a decent cam. I am open to suggestions but I am in no hurry either.;)

Thanks.:)

they are good, my buddy bought one and liked it , but that stall seems low, i had a GER 11" and it was rated at 2500 but it was more like 1800 and didnt do much, i later got a TCI 10" street fighter rated at 3000 (more like 2400)and it worked good, I always go with the lowest rpm they give.

I am running one in mine. Perked it up, stalls to about 2400 on a 2500 rating. We will see what it does behind the big block.

They're OK.. Not the greatest but not the worst either. I would suggest contacting Lenny at Ultimate Converter Concepts.:yes: He's got budget minded stuff too and it will be built FOR YOUR COMBO and not just a generic "Probable" stall. PTC, ATI, Yank and Precision Industries would be my next phone calls.

Hughes Performance build nice products, but if I was going to go with a converter built all the way on the West Coast, I would contact Continental Race Converters and talk to Chris about your specific application, or contact Hughes directly in Phoenix. As many round losses I have against one of the Hughes Performance Super Class sponsored cars, I shouldn't even be mentioning them. :D
