6.4L Billet Torque Converter Upgrade for a 5R110.....

Ok guys with the new changes I want to make with my build (Shooting for 700-750+ RWHP) I'm going to need a complete transmission build. My question is RCD sells a conversion kit to swap over a stock 6.4 torque converter into the 6.0's 5R110. That said is it possible to use that kit to swap in a better performing 6.4 billet torque converter? Or is it not worth it to go that route vs using say a PI Stallion converter for example?

Im looking into a full tranny build as well. What is better about a 6.4 t/q converter, why not just call a reputable 5r110 builder and let them put in a triple disc from a reputable t/q converter company. or are you going to put it all together. Maybe I miss read, or had a few to many tonight. consider me subscribed lol

I'd be interested in hearing any benefits in doing this. Actually I wish I could swap in a 6r140 but that isn't going to happen.

LOL I just figured with the 6.4 being able to hit insane numbers with torque and HP that their converters would be better suited?? Make sense? I know that there are MANY options for billet converters but I want to be different lol. I want stuff that not many if any people have.

Are the 6.4's doing this with stock converters, i assumed(and we all no) that these big hp trucks would have fully built trans.

I want stuff that not many people have too, like my own island and a jet to get me there from my vacation house in jacksonhole wy.

And what the he ll does a 6r140 come in

No not that I know of. They use billet converters as far as I know. The 6r140 comes in the new 6.7 powerstrokes.

The transmissions are the same thru 2010 correct?? Best I recall it's just a different flex plate for the TC to bolt up. You could do a full tranny swap to an 2008-2010 trans you just need the flex plate.

I'd keep it simple unless you just got to spend the money. Precision Industries gets my vote.

Yep the only difference between a 6.4 5r110 and a 6.0 5r110 (to my knowledge anyways) is that the 6.4 has 8 studs that bolt the TC to the motor where the 6.0 only has 6. I have not heard of a 6.4 5r110 being able to take more abuse than a 6.0 5r110 either. I've thought about this too but other than the difference in stud count, I don't see where the gain is. I'm in to hear what people think, that's for sure.
