    ok, long story short, I currently have the option to go with a used R/T tc or a used Edge 2800 tc. both are pretty cheap pricewise. just wasn't sure which was the better option to go with? suggestions?

    I think the guys pretty much summed it. Even a 2600 stall Edge would make the stock 2600 stall RT converter look bad.

    With any used converter, reguardless of the brand, I recommend sending it back to the manufacturer to be cut and cleaned. If there is something wrong with the converter internally, it could cause alot more damage than what it would cost to have it checked out by the manufacturer first.

    awesome.... i might have my hands on a used Edge 2800 soon, so I'll do that. what's the process of sending them in to be "cut and cleaned"?
