Torque converters

Thinking about upgrading my torque converter. Been looking at the AFE F3 and not sure. I like the numbers. I'm close to stick just simple tune and straight piped. Sinister egr cooler and studded. I tow and don't want to worry about anything. Also feel free to point me to a thread that this may be covered on. 6.0 2006 4x4. Also looking at the banks! I haven't found any actual reviews on torque converters. Thanks! Chad

A lot of people are running higher stall converters like in a gas motor. I had my stock converter rebuilt to lock in 200-300 rpm sooner(tighter) and I love it! Diesels produce torque at a much lower rpm so why not use it. Great for fuel mileage. Now if you are into racing or pulling a looser converter may be better.

I upgraded to the P.I. station with stock stall and installed a billet input while in there... no complaints so far.. All my truck does is tow!!. Up and down shifts are solid.. from my understanding it is the T.C. used in by most builders of trans.

Yeah Aaron, I know twisted diesel told me they use. PI, Brian's Truck Shop (BTS) does too, and of course Andy Warren. To the OP, if you are ready give PI a call, they're friendly and great to deal with. Plus you get a free restall in the first year or two.

I'm new to all of this. What is a restall? And how much do the PI's run?

Restall is where they'll change the stall of the converter. A PI is about $1100 I think.

I have a local shop that rebuilds them. Cost was $250 and took 1 day. That was 5 years ago. They lowered the stall speed and furnace brazed the fins.
