    I just had my convertor swapped out by a local Tranny rebuilding shop. They charged me $250.00. You can usually figure 4 hours time X what they charge per hour. I got off real cheap since the people I know have done some rebuilds in the past for me. Percision Industries makes the Vigalante Convertors. Check them out along with Circle D and Yank.

    Problem is I don't have access to tools right now. Is this something you can do with hand tools and in a drive way? I've always had manual cars.

    How much faster is this going to make my car in the quarter mile?

    I am pretty sure on ls1howto.com there is a writeup. A jack, stands, and a few hand tools and you can change your owner converter
