I hate when people post things as if that's the rule. "Hot Rod Harry" has a 10 second S197 with the stock transmission as if that's going to be the rule and it happens all of the time. No, not even close. I'm sick and don't really feel like I need to be doing the research for someone else about their purchase. If you want to see all of the TCI failures between their transmissions and especially their torque converters than search the main S197 forums and you'll find plenty of them breaking. I've seen input shafts, clutches, etc go in the TCI transmissions at power levels where they should of been perfectly fine. The TCI torque converters suck and slip once you start putting any kind of real use on them. If you want a nice torque converter than the PI is the way to go.
