I believe my stock converter is on the way out because it slips occasionally, is it possible to upgrade just the converter? i was told by pro-tech transmission I need to replace the whole tranny..because of metal flakes in the tranny..any truth to this?

When my converter went, I upgraded it to a Precision Industries 3800 stall without touching the rest of the trans. Had no problems. The trans lasted another year until I went single. Then I had to upgrade.

It's pretty easy to check for metal in the trans. Just have a mechanic you trust drop the pan and do a visual check. If there is metal in the pan or filter, it should be pretty obvious. If there is in fact metal in your trans, then it's time for a full upgrade.
