Need new Torque Converter?

It appears that when I put the hammer down and the torque really builds up I am getting more T/C slip than I used to (straight from the monitor). It seems most noticeable in 3rd and 5th gear when the engine downshift while accelerating. The transmission seems to be doing fine, but I am guessing if I don't treat it nicely until I get a new T/C I might need to do some tranny work as well.

So with a lesser PW tune, and the pressure tuned up, the T/C runs the way it is programmed. Get the power up to 700-800 lb-ft and it starts to slip. The acceleration is slower (no kidding), the boost drops 10 or more PSI but the RPM keep going up.

There are a number of choices, but most are only rated for 700-800 lb-ft and a few above that. I don't beat on it very often, but I would like it to hold the power I can make. Darn upgrades...

Who is running what T/C and are you happy with it?

I've got the Precision Stallion converter with 1600 rpm stall and I like it. I could tell right away how much this converter seems to put the power to the ground. With the stock converter in the 2200-2600 range the motor just seemed to be spinning and now I can actually feel a pulling power difference from 2200 to 2600. If that makes any sense.

Brian the stock converter is a 1800 stall.

I agree with Brian on this though as far as whose converter to purchase. When I do my trans I am going with a 1800 or 2000 stall PI Stallion converter.

I'm running a 1600 stall triple disk billet converter from PATC. It is a steal when looking at the others out there. The PI Stallion would be my second choice but since I did a PATC level 4 full billet upgrade on the tranny with some additional upgrades it was a no brainer for me. I also went in with gearhead2012 when they had their Buy 1 Get a 2nd for Half Price Sale so the TC ended up about $675. Great price for a triple disk billet converter. Jesse Warren ran them in his pulling truck.

Thanks for the replies. The buy one and second at 1/2 is a great deal. Any interested parties PM me. I thought I saw that available when I looked yesterday.

As an update, I put a lesser tune on the truck for my drive in at 3:30 this morning. It held in 6th, but over 1500 slip in 5th. I doubt this tune even tries to hold it.

Yeah, I'd see if I could hook up with another member looking to buy like I did with Jared. Saved us a bundle on a really nice product.
