MC -> Outside Junction box

Hi, I have an electric dryer circuit that I'd like to use for an electric vehicle charger box mounted on the outside of the garage wall. The old wire is metal clad cable (MC) and I'd like to run PCV conduit from it, through the wall and up into the charger.

Is there a code compliant way to go from MC to PVC conduit inside the garage?? I guess another way to ask this is, how do I terminate a MC cable inside a PVC junction box correctly?

(it would be very difficult to pull out the MC and replace with conduit all the way from the breaker box)

Re: MC -> Outside Junction box

You could use a metal box and take off with PVC from there to your final location using THWN wire in the conduit. The MC must remain inside the building.
