    Congrats on your et. I have a good place to get some tbolt clamps if you want that are $2.60 each and I haven't broke a single one. They also have a bunch of silicone couplers if anyone needs those
    Thanks, and yes... you were absolutely right when you said I wouldn't "need" a tune for the converter.

    However... I'm looking forward to a tune, not just for the meth and boost controller, but for the converter as well. My shift points are too high (hitting rev limiter every shift) and lockup feels funny during deceleration. But other than those, I LOVE the Yank converter and can't wait to "up the boost" and see what this baby really has in it next year.

    Regarding t-bolt clamps... I have a friend that works at a Mack service center and he said he can get me all the t-bolt clamps I want.
