Choosing an aftermarket Torque Converter

I own a 99 F250 XLT, 7.3L diesel. The transmission (auto) has been causing a lot of problems. My mechanic has recommended to replace the torque converter . I have been wondering which one to get, Precision, RevMax, any recommendations out there? RevMax has a triple clutch that runs about half the price of Precicion's equivalent. They also have a quadruple cluth running for $900.



Help!

You realy cant say that. Due to JW and BTS having moded 6.0 converters that come highly recamended at a great price. BTS qouted me a realy good price on one.

But like said before double check to make sure it is the TC and nothing else. Cause if you put in a new converter and the trans fries any way, you will either need to have it disasembled and cleaned or buy a new one.

Stallion isn't recomended by BTS for a stock trans..best option is a modded 6.0tq converter for the 7.3 trans.

what exactly needs to be modded for a 6.0 TC to go in a 4r100 i know for a fact my TC is going out and had multiple people tell me to raplace it asap before it causes any damage to the rest of the tranny.

i dont want to spend a ton of money on a billiet triple disc TC because i honestly think thats overkill for what i use my truck for. so what would be a good upgrade from the stock E99 7.3 TC?

The outside of the converter is 2 pieces. The part that bolts to the flywhell is called the cover, the side that faces the trans is called the bowel. The cover of the 6.0 tc will not bolt to a 7.3. So. you take the bowl from a 6.0 tc and weld it to the cover of a 7.3. Lower stall and more pull.

The one woods uses I believe is made by TCS and I think it is already modified to fit that app.
