Default FreakShow Performance Torque Converters

FreakShow Performance is finally open. Located in Abilene, Tx. They have over 25 years of experience in the aftermarket converter business. Michael is a honest, hard working, straight up guy that I've known for many years now. Just thought I would get the word out a little to help him in his new business venture. I will post some pics tonight of a couple converters.

He will set you up with anything you need from street stuff all the way to Promods. Give him a shout for more info. 325-701-7830. Make sure to tell him you saw this on yellowbullet.

Thanks, Josh Minzenmayer

Sounds great Josh, you have spoken alot of good things to me about his product...but if he lets you guys hang out with him, I might be a little worried ! . I'm sure that we will get to see some of them in action real soon, so keep us posted!

Sounds awfully close to where the now-defunct Art Carr Performance / Redneck Performance was, wondering if there is any correlation between the 2?

After thinking about it for a bit, I was wrong in my first response. Of course there is a correlation, I mean, they are out of business which opened up the market a little for someone who has been trying to do this for a couple years now on his own. He actually tried to buy some of Art Carr's machines and tooling but lets just say they aren't ready to part with anything yet. Instead, everything in the shop is pretty much new.

I know a guy that just got a converter from freakshow. He was very happy with the customer service when buying it. I will let you guys know how it does.

I got a converter from Freakshow earlier this year and it's for my '03GT with a 4R70W. This thing works great and just as I had ordered. The guy will work with you on anything. Great customer service and would recommend to anyone!

I just tested mine out this past friday. The converter it replaced was a holeshot 3600 B&M. With the B&M my 60's were all over the place (2.02 at worst to 1.87 at best, in one night, usualy 12.30-12.60et) when the sun went down, it the swing was worse. I was pulling my hair out...

With the new freakshow, off the trailer, it went a 1.79, and all 4 other passes were 1.79. The ET was the same: 12.389-12.399 (messing with shift points every pass) My MPH only fell off by .5, from before.

I am more than happy with mine. I was worried at first (buying an ebay converter, and everyone quoting me $800-$1000 for a converter), but the guy hit the nail on the head with the stall. It was the best $320 I spent...

Called him today...He definitely knows his shit, and builds his converters with top of the line parts...the unbelievable part is the price...I am going to seriously consider using his stuff though
