Ashland, MS –Triple-disc 6L80 Race Torque Converters from TCI are new bolt-together, “race only” components for 6L80 /6L90 transmissions used in conjunction with extremely high horsepower engines.
New TCI GM Bolt-Together 6L80 Race Torque Converters are designed for use in the punishing environment of high horsepower LS 6L80 or 6L90 applications. With a fully furnace-brazed turbine and a CNC-machined billet design, this piece is engineered specifically for serious racers that require a torque converter with the utmost in strength and quality. These converters are designed for extreme power, easy stall speed changes and consistent and reliable performance. The race version requires a custom-tuned TCU/PCM, but the street version does not require tuning. Benefits include a triple-disc clutch with significantly higher torque capacity and much higher clamping force than a single-disc design, and they have the ability to fully lock up under wide open throttle so there is little or no high-gear slippage. Even though these converters are designed as a “race only” part, with special tuning they can be used in many high horsepower and modified vehicles when a single-disc converter simply won’t stand the power. Featured along with the high torque capacity, triple-disc, woven carbon fiber friction lock-up clutch is a 50-spline clutch hub, meaning the horsepower capacity of these converters is second to none. The bolt-together CNC billet design enables users to easily set the optimum stall speed for his or her application without sending it back to TCI. When the stall speed is properly matched to the torque curve of the engine, the launch and overall performance of the vehicle will be greatly increased. The bolt-together design also enables quick disassembly to allow inspection and service of bearings and lock-up components at home or at the track. Each hand-assembled unit is HDT™-coated to prevent corrosion and help dissipate heat, and all go through the legendary TCI Triple Testing process. TCI GM 6L80 Bolt-Together Race Torque Converters feature unparalleled performance and strength for the highest horsepower applications, including those that feature forced induction.
