Torque Converter, HPOP

Hey guys,

So I am getting pretty close to doing my build. As is stands, I have studs, oem head gaskets, rings, ported intake manifold (Thanks Nate), bullet proof water pump, BD exhaust manifolds, MBRP Y-pipe and turbo back exhaust all either in transit or on hand.

I already have a bullet proof FICM, delete, air intake, coolant filter and all the updates installed.

Just a few more things (they should seem pretty obvious to u guys).

But at what point do I need to upgrade my torque converter? With the tuning that's going to get done (yet to order it) will I need one ? And for those of you who went ahead and bought one, what brand is everyone using?

Are similar priced ones (in the $1000 range) all more or less the same?


I am keeping stock sticks and the stock turbo. With that in mind, do I need to upgrade the HPOP? From what little bit of reading I did on this subject, it's only beneficial with larger injectors... true?

I have some other questions regarding tuning but I will just start a new post.

Just my opinion, but if you are keeping stock fuel and stock air you shouldn't need to upgrade.

The stock hpop will supply far more oil than stock injectors could ever demand, just make sure it's a healthy pump.
