Precision of New Hampton

They supply to everyone including German Transaxle.

They'll ship to your door but you need to have your torque convertor back in the mail within 5 working days or you loose your core charge. Core charge is only $100 unlike $200 for Gowesty.

Check with the transmission jobber in a city near you. You want a TC with an "H" or "Z" stamped into one of the three mounting bosses.

Long story, but I am looking for a TC as I do not have a core and seems like a lot of places need the core to do the rebuild.
Any suggestions on sourcing a TC other than GTA?

May not be the cheapest way but You could look into getting a core from a scrap yard. And (with any luck) go on from there
