Torque Converter

I have a stock trans and converter as of now and they have 147K miles. They are performing fairly decent right now. My question is if I were to install say a SUNCOAST converter would that help me out towing and putting more power to the ground? Would my clutches last? Basically is it worth doing?


Secondly, if I were to put in a new converter and my transmission failed and I got it rebuilt could I put that converter back in or would I have to get a new one again?

River City Diesel converter is the way to go. A lot of guys have had good success with just going with an upgraded converter. It takes that weak link away and makes your weak link greater internally.

I guess it just depends on what fails and if any debris goes through the converter.
