Sun coast VS Florida torque converters 13-35-ls-sd? Price is only 100$ different. Neither has core charge.

Tough decision. :5SHOTS:
SunCoast has proven and highly acclaimed reviews by owners on this forum, myself being one of them.
Actually I have two of them, one in my Dodge Cummins and the other in my Jeep Liberty. Very happy with both of them.

I believe there has been a few good reviews by owners on this forum on the Florida Torque Converters?
May want to do a search for Florida Torque Converter on LOST to read reviews?
Maybe some owner who is actually running one can give you some feedback.... :ALONE:

I still believe in the old adage, you get what you pay for, so don't make a 100$ mistake.
Having to R&R a transmission the second time around to replace a torque converter purchase mistake can get costly$$$.
Ask me how I know, been there, done that on my Dodge. Never again. :banghead:
Do it right the first time, cry once and never look back.... :juggle:

:2cents:

agree and this project is not cut corner although I’m not doing a full rebuild but just bulletproof it for now. It was more about the fact that they are practically the same price. But one user said he gained 3-4 mpg just by installing the FTC unit, so the lower stall really helped him a lot and that sounds great especially with a turned up 2.8 but I also want to tow with it so gotta be burly.

Actually with shipping the price difference is 30$. So I guess it comes down to which one is the better unit. Anyone know the stall speed of the suncoast? The FTC is listed as 400rpm below stock.

Call SunCoast, I am sure they would be glad to tell you. If you get a number, share...
