This is a poll to see how many of you would want a torque converter w/ transmission cooler (@$400) or a valvebody upgrade (@$600) as the first modification to an automatic transmission (street driven w/ budget).

Choices:

1. Torque Converter w/ Transmission Cooler

What the???? Torque converter AND cooler for $400???? From where?? I just ordered mine from Andre this week for $450 (including shipping and core). $400 is a great deal man!!! After I install my converter, I'm gonna do the valve body... Dan, I hope I catch you on AIM....we need to talk. :D

Notice I put @ (about) before the $400. ;) It's just an example price for the straight comparison to the valvebody upgrade, not including labor / shipping / cores.

Andre, you got a good deal at $450 (including shipping and core). Andre is a great businessman and I am sure he will not overcharge anyone.

Yeah, he's a cool guy...we spoke many times before I got it, and instead of giving me what I wanted (3500 rpm stall), he explained what would work best (3000) because a higher stall cuts down your top speed efficiency. Very cool guy. :cool:

That's Awesome! :) Could you please email me ([email protected]) that contact information and any details you can give me about the guy (where's Glen Cove, what else does he sell, etc)? I'll archive that email until I start building my next Sentra.

Thanks!

Dan

I've heard about Maximum Tuning...there was a group deal on B15sentra.net for their valvebody mod a while ago. I dont know where they are or anything though. Do they do their own installs? I gotta install my torque converter.....just got it today. :)

By the way altimate, where in NYC are you?

The torque converter actually works.....for a long time I was skeptical, but now I cant even get the full effect of it....the wheels keep skipping so I back off. Cant wait till spring or summer when the roads heat up again....:D

I did it at Andersen Transmission...a couple of blocks from me... for $300. Maximum wanted $350, and he would do the valvebody for me at a later date for the group price...that was cool, but if I took the car and left it in LI for 5 hours, I would have no way to get home, or get back to the car.

Hey Robb, we should hook up one day....whats up?
