quick review on my new edge converter
ok fellas i finally got my converter in. i figured id do a quick write up for anyone thinking about using an edge converter.
i called a few companies and was just about ready to shell out the doe for the stallion pi triple disk converter before i called Andre at edge. i asked him questions for around 30 minuts about all the things edge-bashers say. you all no what i mean. " if u lock it up at wot you will break ####!" " you get what you pay for" yada yada yada. andre went over all my questions, unlike all the other companies i called, and he thoroughly countered all the "problems" that have been proposed with his converters.
the converter showed up right when he promised it would.... i did not receive my free t shirt(#### u andre!!!!! hahah aim jk) but all in all he is a really good guy to work with and you all no that makes it alot easier to give someone your money. threw out installing it ( im still a pretty young guy and i have never done something like this before) i called him with stupid question after stupid question just to make sure i was doing things right. he always gave me as much time as it took to answer my questions fully.
ok now for the converter it self. it flashes to right about 2600... i dont have the 4:10 in it yet (comming real soon) and i told andre it would be a 4:10 so i assume that will raise the stall a bit. it locks up nice and hard and really puts a smile on my face. every day driving... there is no mistaken the car has a higher stall speed. i wasnt sure what to expect as it is a lock up converter i didnt no if it would drive like stock untill i get on it or not... even driving it like grama is in the car, the rpms will shoot right up to 1500 before she starts to move and under normal acceleration it will float around 3k rpms untill i get in overdrive. defiantly noticeable stall but it isnt anything a week or so of driving it wont get me used to. no trans cooler on it yet (havent had the time to install it. and i haven't really beat the car that much yet. but im very happy. the car shifts much faster as well and u aode guys no that delay between shifts is annoying as hell!
sorry that was so long and no video yet hahah. but i thought this might help anyone looking in to one.
