Thoughts on new torque Converter

So I got my new torque converter installed in my 2011 sport. The truck has 2800 km on it. If any of you are on the fence about getting it done because you don't want your truck taken apart here are my thoughts. I stood and watched the tech the whole time my truck was in the shop--I am VERY fussy about my stuff. It was a very painless experience. About four hours. The only part that did not go smoothly was re-installing the trans because there is a bracket on the drivers side that goes to the diff and the motor mount that is really in the way when re installing the trans. I little wiggling and a little prying with a large pry bar and in it went. Other than that it is just nuts and bolts and very simple.

The new converter is wicked quite and causes way less vibration. My truck has not been that smooth and quite since I got it.

So in short

Yes the juice is worth the squeeze

Remains to be seen how long it will be before the new one starts growling again. Have heard of a few that have been replaced, some were ok, some wern`t, so its gonna be interesting to see the miledge results on the trucks that had the new TC put in. Some have reported that the new TC was noisier than the original one that came out of their truck. I know this to be true, because some of those guys are right here on this forum talkin about it. Anyhow, good luck to you guys that have good results, i hope for yall`s sake that it lasts and stays quiet. Mine rattles and groans, but i`m not letting them touch my truck until it blows the transmission out of it, THEN they`ll have to replace BOTH the TC and the transmission. My TC noise has not ever gotten worse, nore has it ever gotten better, but i dont want them making my truck worse off by touching it, which seems to be the issue around here at ALL the dealerships. Every recall they`ve done on my truck has made my truck worse off and i am NOT happy about the sh!t quality of work they`ve been doing to my truck.
