Hey Chuck:

I found this on another site. Thot it might help. At least get some conversation started. I am curious too. I have actually heard some say tha a stock FORD tranny used a triple disc.

i have a Goerend tripple disc, it locks up hard but not too hard really. i don't think that the problem is the amount of clutches a converter has because when all these different brands and makes of converters lock they are in direct drive. the multiple clutches keep it from slipping. i believe it is how loose the converter is when in fluid coupling. my converter is really tight so when it locks there is maybe a 200-300 rpm drop from unlocked to locked. when i had my stock converter it would loose 600-700rpm when it locked up.....

Be careful of getting a big TQ like a Stallion..they will kill a stock trans. A great TQ to use is a 6.0 TQ setup for your trans.

You can use a 6.0 TC on a 4r100?

Yes..not a stock one but one set up for a 4r100
You should also replace the pump with a modded one or mod it for flow and replace the bushing.
Replaceing the VB or modding it is a must do also for the best performance.

If a sigle clutch converter will hold 400 ft lbs of torque, what will a 3 clutch converter hold??? Begin to see the advantage??
Ford never had a 3 clutch converter, only a 2 clutch and it was junk. The metal slots that held the steel plats were too soft and it would beat itself to pieces.

You can not use a 6.0 converter in a 7.3 but,,, you can get a 7.3 converter with a 6.0 bowl on it. It makes for about 200 less rpm on the stall, or lower eng speed on acceleration

i seriously doubt a stock single or 2 disc torque converter will hold 400hp.... my guess is they start slipping at around 320hp (to the wheels)

the main you want to upgrade to a tripple disc is so that you eliminate slippage... slippage causes heat.. and heat is the number 1 killer of your trans...

with proper tuning a triple disc TC is a great upgrade...

Hate to tell you but as John Wood just told me today all Ford tranies have had triple disks since '96. FYI all TQ's that JW uses are based on the 6.0 TQ...not a 7.3 with a 6.0 bowl.

Raul, you didn't read carefully he said 400ft lb of torque not 400HP
