aFe F3 Billet Steel Diesel Torque Converters
Torque converters are responsible for transferring engine power to the transmission. Single clutch OE torque converters can slip and increase transmission fluid temps.
As you add engine performance parts like intakes, manifolds, etc. the factory torque converter’s stall RPM rises thus reducing the available low RPM pulling power.
This is where the new aFe F3 torque converter comes in.
Installing the F3 torque converter, with its billet-steel construction and three-clutch pack assemblies, will lower your truck’s stall speed to as low as 1,200RPM giving you the perfect power range for diesel trucks up to 1,000hp.
The results of using an aFe F3 torque converter are improved 0-60mph times (by up to 1-second), increases in towing speeds, smoother power transitions, lower transmission fluid temperatures and a more satisfying driving experience.
Round clutch tips are used to optimize fit and clutch wear while a custom-designed stator (with one-way sprag clutch) is used for torque multiplication to stall speed.
The billet steel front cover is used for increased strength and durability over the factory stamped steel cover. This Billet cover prevents converter ballooning (failure) that is common with OE converters under high torque conditions.
The F3 torque converter ($999.25) comes with a limited lifetime warranty and will be shipping the first week of November 2013.
