The overall performance of most original cars with original engines is generally preferable when using torque converters. Minor changes in camshaws that push the power beach in a diet may require a different converter. If you are in this situation, you will have to buy a new one. Keep in mind the following when you try to select a converter for your vehicle:
1.) Race converters are not for ordinary cars!
It is important to understand if your car is driven on an ordinary road, it is probably not a racing car. Race car converters will not provide satisfactory performance for an ordinary vehicle, so don’t waste your time looking at these types of converters.
2.) Select a converter for your engine type
Do not install a converter designed for a small block in a car with a high movement or high pair travel engine. Some companies declare directly in their announcements “not for use with large block engines”. This declaration does not mean that the converter is of low quality and that the additional bequee in a large powerful racing engine will kill it. It also means that low -speed coupling efficiency is more designed for engines that produce less torque. Large blocks with high blocks with high torque or even small blocks with a large movement must use converters closely suited to their power at the lower motor speed.
3.) Do not add a converter is too loose with a street RPM engine
If you have a racing car and do it, you will miss a diet far too early in the race of a quarter of a mile. Most vehicles are set up to go through a quarter of a high -end mile. It is important to keep in mind that the effectiveness of the 6l80 torque converter is greatly affected by the engine speed with the trap seed. We have seen loose converters slide almost 1,000 rpm in large large and this should be taken into account in the selection of converters.
4.) Consider all variables such as tire size, speed ratio and maximum speed
All suppliers of parties deemed will ask questions about these aspects on your car before selling your converter to you. Know all of these features before going to buy your room.
The 4l80e torque converter will provide a minor flipper in the disc at your normal idle speed and will allow normal acceleration in traffic without excessive shift and high RPM. It will provide a constant speed on the road without the notable engine speed changing during climbing and descending hills.
5.) A torque converter clutch can improve your converter
The torque converter clutch (TCC) can be used to stop any torque multiplication for dragster races, road races and many runners will use TCC from second speed to provide direct coupling between the engine and the rear axle. This allows a relatively loose converter to be used for maximum starting line performance and always see the advantages of the complete power transfer during the race and the lowest possible diet at trap speeds.
Multiple disc assemblies increase the amount of friction material to considerably increase the maintenance power when the TCC is applied. The pump cover and the pump set are made of much stronger materials to maintain their shape correctly. These converters are available from most companies for applications where the user plans to use TCC when the engine manufactures full power and want all the power produced to be directly to the racing transmission.
