Revmax torque converters

Anyone running one in their 6L? My factory one is pretty worn out...stalls around 1400rpms. Really wanna get the RCD/PI one but can't swing it right now. I see revmax has a stage 4 converter for like $600 if I desperately need one. Just not sure how they are if worse comes to worse.

I have one in my truck, I have a thread called "budget transmission build". So far it has been great, they say holds 750rwhp, and are great to deal with. Their more expensive unit, is in same line as the PI, and all the other big time converters, but of course comes with a price tag, I will like to try later. The sales person for the converter knows his stuff. He told he that the converts like PI and theirs are actually based off a turbo 350 GM converter, I plan on running this one until it gives up, that was part of the test.

Adrian...what improvements did you notice with the converter from the stock one? Did the truck shift better, firmer/quicker lockup, accelerate faster? Also did the sales guy explain the difference between the stage 4 and stage 5 converter?

Improvement are as all you stated, firmer shifts, quick lock up, and accelerate faster. It also feels like more power is making it to the ground. The revmax phone gives you options, between transmissions, converters and so on, so basically when you pick converter you will be in contact will a sales person that is very well informed on converters. The guy know an extremely amount about converters and everyone else's also. The stage 4 is a stock upgrade to handle more power and towing, It is a billet unit and has upgraded triple clutches. The stage 5 is stronger by far, is larger and as he explains is same as the other like PI, Sun Coast, based off a GM turbo 350 converter. If you have anymore question I would call them, it has been a little while since talking to them, so might have somethings I forgot about.
