Just curious what the average price for a good converter for a street/strip car usually run.

Thanks,

A GOOD one runs around $800.00 and trust me from experience, you get what you pay for.

I would suspect for a good 10" convertor like most street/strip cars use, you are going to spend approximatey $450. With convertors, you do get what you pay for. If it's cheap, it's junk, period.

I would call convertor company of your choice and see what they recommend. Personally, I would call either Coan, or JPT.

JPT quoted me $350. It seems cheap but I hear they make a good converter. Kind of confused....

That 350.00 will be well spent. Did you tell him ALL there is about your car? I have had my JPT converter for years. I race at the track and run alot on the street. NOT 1 PROBLEM with the trans or converter!!!!

Since it is a street convertor, it wont be near as expensive as a race convertor. A race convertor is around $800. A generic street convertor by other companies is usually less than $250. So, looking at it that way, it is still higher priced.

You wont be disappointed. They build good convertors.
