converter ?

I had a guy tell me that I could get my converter opened up that it would be cheaper than getting a slightly larger one.I have no idea if this can be done and if it is safe.I only have small mods such as JBA catless midpipes,BBK 85mm tb,powerbone ud pulley,K&N cai.I was going to go with a small converter but would like to know about this. Not sure if I put this in the right place if not please move it for me thanks.

Torque Converter? Or catalytic converter?
I don't think either one can be 'opened up'.

I wouldn't let anyone except a tranny specialty shop, and even then it takes special equipment, to pull the converter apart. Just buy the stall converter you need.
