failed torque converter PICS

I had a single disc billet TC fail about 2 months ago, I cut it apart to show what failed, this converter lasted 19000 miles it was slipping from day one. Lessons learnd, dont buy the pos from the local tranny shop, only buy from proven brands! it was replaced with a PI stallion from DI.

Re: failed torque converter PICS

DI is about to rebuild my tranny. What options are there? I am not up to speed on what to do to bullet proof these things.

I do not drag race but my wife does, at every intersection.

Re: failed torque converter PICS

the forward pump should deffinatly get some adjustments, first is convert the pwm(pulse width moulated) clutch lock up to on/off transgo make a kit for this second there is a passage in the pump that is a "engneered leak" plug the hole drill a new passage to redirect the fluid over the over drive clutches. the reason for this is at wide open throttle the OD cltches are starved of fluid with this mod they will be lubericated all the time with no worries, i have a picture on my link of the front pump in the "my truck file". the other mod is you can increase clutch surface area by using the the steel plates out a E40D kit with the friction disc's out of the 4r100 kit this will allow you add 1 more clutch to the pack. there are other tricks that can be done depending on what the tranny is going to be used for. and get a PI converter you will not be sorry.
