Default Tc dry lube recommendations

Itís been a while since Iíve been on here with the summer and my job, but I have a question about what type of dry lube to use on a torque converter. Iíve seen two at Home Depot, a dry lube with Teflon, and a dry graphite lube. Which is better for a 30 series?

And, on an unrelated topic, is it too late to enter the build off?

J.

You could always order the Comet Lube online. It’s about $20.

Graphite Dry Lube works fine for me. Teflon is junk.
