Is your torque converter stifling your vehicle’s performance potential?

If you’ve ever opted to keep your transmission out of overdrive to avoid burning the clutches out of your torque converter, then the answer is yes.

According to Gary Bruce of the COMP Performance Group, TCI has found the solution to this performance roadblock. Introduced at SEMA¬†2013 in Las Vegas, NV, TCI’s GM 4L60E and 4L80E torque converters allow you to operate your car in overdrive and lock-up without burning up the clutches.

And that’s not all.

These torque converters also feature a unique, bolt-together design that allows you to make stall speed changes and perform any maintenance on your torque converter at home. That means you can literally bump up your stall speed for weekend racing right in your own garage!

Find out more about TCI’s new 4L60E and 4L80E torque converters from Bruce himself. Summit Racing put together this quick video with him at last week’s SEMA Show.
