What converter are the guys using that don't have a built trans using? Mine has really started to build alot of heat when driving around town and when ever the converter is not locked up. More than it used to anyways, with 100 deg outside with the ac on in town it will creep up to 195-205 deg. If I'm going down the road over 45mph even with 6k in tow if will only see 180 @ best.
Never used to see over 180 unless I was towing even in town.
I think my converter is going south is this a good diagnosis? I want to get a JW trans not just ready for the $ it takes yet. I'm only at 65,500 miles.
Thanks guys, I can from TDS under a different name.

Can't say there was a noticeable difference in egt's.
I have done so much stuff since I swapped that I couldn't comment on boost either. I think the smaller housing might make more boost but really overdrive the turbo. The bigger housing is a little more efficient for drive pressure, etc.
I felt like it pulled a little harder on the top end with the larger housing.
The .84 kinda choked out at higher boost levels and the 1.0 seems to keep pulling.
My new tow master trans uses a new 6.4 converter.This converter is great
for the guy running 400 hp and less.The 6.4 and 6.0 have the same stall.But
the 6.4 now has harden splines and new design tripledisc clutch. I will be testing this converter in my friends twin turbo 7.3 just to see what it takes to break it! All of my billet converters are still built from new 6.0's. I buy them from ford and send them to TCS for building. Remember the big problem with
this trans is not the converter pursae. The problem is the stock frt pump can not keep the converter full of oil! No matter who's converter if you do not fix
the problem you have not fixed it at all!
