Torque converter

What torque converter do you guys recommend and what stall. Also what should I expect to pay for it?

Circle D. Cost for the converter is $1150 not including fluids or installation. Stall will depend on many factors.

This is my every day driver also. Will doing a aftermarket converter affect my car in any negative way.

Yes fuel mileage will suffer a little. Other than that no.

I run a 4C which stalls at 3800. I regret not going with the 5C but Circle D gives one free restall with every purchase so I might go that route.

Precision Industries offers a 9.5 inch single disc for 849 or a multi disc for 1079 for our cars. Anyone tried them?

I just put a Circle d 3c in(3500-3700 stall). I paid $1215 shipped. The car drives great! The converter feels tight while driving it regularly but it flashes nicely when I get on it. The car REALLY wakes up! You will love it. The only downside is the snowball effect of mods you are going to need to help with traction. And you will need to get it tuned because it will be shifting and locking up too early. Gas mileage will take a small hit around town but the joy of the drive will more than make up for it.

I've never heard of anyone using them.

Circle D is a proven well made converter. I wouldn't use any other one out there.

I ask because I have used there products in the past on the LSX platform and they were top notch. I know certain brands are better on certain platforms though. Looking myself and deciding between a 4c and 5c or possibly the precision route but wouldnt unless someone has feedback on them for the 6r80

I'm sure the PI unit is great but as far as I know a lot of people have not ran one in a 6r80. Circle d has a trusted and proven product for the 6r80 and with the PI unit being roughly the same price as the Circle d. 99% of people are going with the more proven product. And the guys at circle d are really great. I emailed a question on a saturday night not expecting anything till monday and Chris and Brian both got back with me Saturday night at 8pm. They are a dedicated group.

I've used ODBII guage software and never seen a PID for trans temp. Just water and intake temp.
