I deal a good bit with TCI. Did you let them know what it was doing and what did they say? Did the converter work for you before the wheelie? How many passes did you have on it before it took a dump?

Did you check the stator support tube on the pump in the trans? With that much damage, you might have hurt the tube and covered the feed holes up?

Im sorry that you have had so many problems! In their defense....I have had a lot of satisfied customers but yes...you are correct, it makes a big difference when you are the one swapping out the converters! If you ever need my assistance, please feel free to give me a shout! Thanks!
