Torque Converters

For a great improvement in your 2003.5-2007 6.0L Ford Powerstroke’s pulling capabilities, check out the Banks Power Billet Torque Converter.  When the factory torque-converter in your vehicle is tested against heavy tow-loads, there is a possibility for the poorly designed part to fail.  If this happened, it would damage your transmission and because most aftermarket parts have smaller clutch surfaces, their poor construction leads to higher transmission temperatures and clutch wear.  Thanks to the Banks Power Billet Torque Converter’s unique RaceLock design, this component was built to withstand the toughest of situations.

Unlike the competition where some manufacturers weld the torque converter’s turbine fins in place that leaves gaps susceptible leaking and loosening, the Banks Power Billet Torque Converter was brazed in a furnace ensuring the ultimate durability and performance.  It comes with a three-tiered clutch system and a bulletproof billet steel cover that maintains contact without any flexing.  These factors allow the system to triple the capacity of torque in comparison to stock from 600 to 1800 torque.

Due to the lockup clutches slip-resistant design, your vehicle’s transmission fluid stay cooler thereby extending your transmission’s lifespan.  The torque converter was made specially to match the Duramax’s torque band, which gives your wheels the most power possible and cuts almost a second off of the time it takes your vehicle to get from 0-60 MPH.  This diesel system is the most reliable in terms of longtime transmission preserving against fluid contamination and overheated fluid.

With all these special features and designs, you’ve go to be wondering how there could be any other dealer of aftermarket upgrades when Banks has everything you’ll ever need for great prices.  Not only are the parts immensely reliable, but having that special pricing is just icing on the cake.  So if you’re ready to make the leap and join the world’s best auto parts industry then go online at Banks Power Products, using the search bar located at the left-hand side of the screen or call at 714-848-2170.


billet torque converter

The torque converter is one of the most over-looked yet most important component in your vehicle. Now your factory torque converter will work fine with your stock products, but as soon as you start adding aftermarket products that will produce more power, your stock converter won’t be able to handle the power and starts to degrade and could cause some major damage to your transmission and once your transmission goes it’s kind of game over for your vehicle. That is why it is important to get a better, stronger aftermarket torque converter that can handle the added power from your other systems. Now I hope I haven’t scared you too much because I’m about to tell you about the Banks Billet Torque Converter (BBTC), the BBTC will be able to handle the power demands that the other aftermarket products will want to send to it.

A great example is a Banks Billet Torque Converter for a 2003.5-2007 6.0L Ford Powerstroke Diesel Truck. The BBTC is made with a non-slip three-friction element clutch with a heavy-duty Billet steel cover, so you know this product was built to last and withstand heavy loads. Unlike the stock converter that has the bolt points welded on and strains and starts to cause slippage when under strain such as towing or just hauling heavy loads. Also due to the lockup clutch being slip resistant, it doesn’t create as much heat caused by the friction when it switches gears. This allows the transmission fluid to stay at cooler temperatures and won’t damage your transmission. Not to mention the Billet steel cover won’t flex when in constant contact, this almost triples the torque capacity, this means you could even use the BBTC on your racing vehicle. So if you like improved Low gear acceleration, prolonged transmission life, and lowered transmission fluid temperatures. Then what are you waiting for, go and get a Banks Billet Torque Converter, trust me your trucks transmission will be very happy with you.

One more thing, if your worried about the reliability of this product, then you shouldn’t be. Because like all of Banks’ products the BBTC has gone through an extensive amount of testing before being shipped out. The product started out as a CAD software prototype where it was tested digitally, then a physical prototype was made and sent to the Flow Bench to be flow tested. After the flow testing it is sent on down to the dyno for any last-minute fine tuning and adjustments before it is ready for its last test. The last test is the most important one, this is when it is field tested to make sure that the product not only outperforms in the shop but in real world applications, as well as making sure that their product will remain reliable and durable.
