TCSLIP #'s

I have a stock tranny, when should I start being concerned about it?

To figure out how much it is slipping you go about 70 and then go wot and be going fast enough to where it wont down shift right?


on the 310 tune, it got up to 52. On the 210 tune it got up to 12. and now on the new 300 tune, it got up to 40.

could I just get a suncoast tq converter? I dont have an extra 5k to spend on a fully built trany right now.

That isn't too bad for the 310 and 300 tunes, but that is high for the 210 tune.

Yes, you can just do a Suncoast torque converter. I recommend it if your willing to drop the coin on it.

Yes, I love my Suncoast converter. It locks so much firmer (which I personally like) and there is a lot less slip. I should say little to no slip.

Reliability if you are hard on your truck. I would do a built tranny if you tow heavy a lot, race the truck, or sled pull. If not, the converter is plenty. Doing a deep pan might also be a good investment. It gives you 6 more quarts of fluid. Some people are against them because it takes the fluid a LITTLE while longer to heat up, but it keeps the fluid a lot lower when you are beating on the truck. I have hot lapped my truck at the track (made 9 passes one night), and my tranny temp never got above 185 degrees.

I dont tow anything heavy. I may hook to a slep once or twice a year and race the guy next to me at the stop light every now and then. would that all be ok with just the tq converter? I am not hard on my truck by no means. and would I be able to run the 350 tune with the converter?

Everything should be good, but the 350 tune is really hard on everything. It killed my torque converter, but I know of a few people that have done other damage to their stock tranny's with the 350 tune.
