    I would be going on my 3rd Sinister mike spoolinator torque converter. Im still at a loss as to why this keeps happening to me. The first failure started the same way, In park and neutral the transmission is quiet as can be but in drive and reverse it whines like a power steering pump without fluid. The symptoms of the last Failure started after I launched the car at the track and was driving back. I pulled the converter out yesterday as well as the pump. The pump looks great as with everything less. Jeff bush convinced me to go with a #8 Precision spragueless type converter. I dont want to ruin another one. Any idea?
