6.0 or 6.4 converter in 4R100

Who has run or currently runs a 5R110 converter in their 4R100? How much was it? Anyone know the stall specs? I'm interested in trying this out to cure my bouncing TC and get rid of the horrible noise it makes...
Is the 6.4 converter any better/worse than the 6.0?
I'm looking at this as a cheap upgrade/repair...
Mainly I'm looking at price... I've heard as low as $400???

Re: 6.0 or 6.4 converter in 4R100

John wood uses the 6.0 and 6.4 converter in his trans's. He told me out of all the acceleration tests he did with various converters, the 5r110 conv. Performed the best. He then upgrades them with billet parts. I would guess a stocker would hold 350-375 hp pretty well. Keep in mind a stronger converter will transfer even more wrath to the stock clutches and parts. $400 seems way cheap, it would be worth it I would think, don't forget the valvebody and cooler upgrades. With that trifecta, it should last awhile under 350hp, if the clutches are in good shape.

I can't remember what John said about the differance between the two was, just the bolt pattern maybe? Give him a call, great guy and killer transmissions. It would be interesting to know if he would sell just a converter and valvebody the price, then down the road save for a full one, you'd be that much further.

I'm gonna give JW a call and see what all I would need if I could find a good deal on a stock TC.

Pretty sure Weweld still has a 6.0l converter in his F450 & said it runs good.
It will work just fine for your truck J.

That's what I was thinking! Thanks guys! RockinJW, did you notice if it helped acceleration at all? Does it feel like the stall is much lower?

I got a 6oh converter in my truck. Works well, and have not had one problem. I don't know the price, since I paid for everything done to the trans as one.
