Call Goerend Brothers shop and tell them what you want to do. They are good and they are honest with good service. My waste gate is blocked off, don't use it. Some one may have one laying around they will give or sell to you cheap.

How much power do you want? You can make mountains of power on a 12v for free, but it's going to break .

LOL.

then, no power for you.

$650 VB

$900 input shaft

$950 Converter.

That's all you need.

Can't afford that, then get ready for rebuild after rebuild of that auto trans, plus alot of horsepower getting lost into the converter instead of on the road..

Suncoast is also good. As has been said above, KDP!!! Has it been done yet? If the pin falls out and munches gears it's bad ju ju and some bucks to get it back on the road. First things first.
