TC lockup

i recently had a local shop build my tranny, and they are using your ATS TripleLok® Torque Converter for my early 99, will i need to buy your Copilot for better control?

The co-pilot is always a good idea... is it needed? no... but with it you will have better performance, better lockup, better torque transfer, and the transmission will handle more abuse...

i know i don't necessary have to have it, but i'm planning on pulling quite a bit this summer with it, and definately pulling heavy loads of round bales as well here on the farm....i just don't wanna spend an extra 600$, im wondering if any other kind of TC lockup controler will work, or since i'm using your TC, is it recommended to go with the Co-pilot?

IMO...VB's and custom tunes on a TS chip are for controlling shifts not electronic jacking of fluid pressures...I would never get a add on unit.

I agree with Cary. Have Tony reburn your chip for it.

Same control as the copilot without the extra spending

The co pilot is designed for the guys that dont have chips

you sir have no idea what our unit does if you say that... OUR UNIT DOES NOT CONTROL SHIFT POINTS... it is however designed to work in conjuction with people that have tuners (DAVE)


now for the OP... if you are going to be doing a lot of abuse on the trans, then yes I would highly recommend it... it will make sure you have true lockup and keep fluid pressure up while under heavy strain... it will save the transmission...

Thanks Bill for the advice, i'm still extremely new to TC lockups, and if it would be advantageous of me to buy one or not......but since your a dealer for them, do you mind PM ing me a price for a co-pilot? or would it be the 600$ like the site says?
