A torque converter is a direct fitment, there is no need to replace your fly wheel or put billet input shafts. You will noticed a difference with a billet 2-clutch TC. And my gut instinct is telling their torque converter is about 300% overpriced being as it is coming from Banks and these name brand diesel performance stores like to markup for the name and only the name.

I'd look at a PI...best converter you can get short of getting a BTS.

I have a transmission shop and we use Recon Torque Converters, they are Billet plated and come in stock, 2-clutch and 3-clutch models, I am running one in mine with our Stage 3 build, its a beast.. If you want one, I can shoot you a price and see if you can't find one judged by that price.

Banks torque converter

I installed a Banks TC in my trans when I put in my re-built trans. I like it. It is the triple disc billet one. I paid about $950 for it. Before I bought it I found an article in a magazine that tested the Banks converter against a stock one, on the same truck, and the truck was actually a bit faster through the quarter mile just due to the TC. The triple disc also helps sling those big loads up and going from a stop, especially starting off on a hill.
