Installing the aFe Power F3 torque converter will lower your stall speed to as low as 1,200RPM giving you the perfect range for diesel trucks up to 1,000hp. The results of using an F3 torque converter are improved 0-60mph times (by up to 1-second), increase in towing speeds, lower transmission fluid temperatures and a more satisfying driving experience. Each torque converter comes with a lifetime warranty.
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. The F3 Torque converters use a 3-clutch pack assembly which offers up to 3 times the torque capacity of the single clutch OE torque converter. This allows crisper shifts in high gears, smoother power transmission and improved pulling power while reducing transmission fluid temperatures.
In order to optimize fit and clutch wear, aFe Power uses round clutch tips. A custom designed stator (with one-way sprag clutch) is used for torque multiplication to stall speed. The billet steel front cover increases strength and durability over the factory stamped steel cover as well as prevents converter ballooning (failure) that is common with OE converters under high torque conditions. The turbine fins are responsible for transferring the torque from the engine to the transmission. The F3 turbine fins are brazed for maximum strength under the harshest conditions and high torque transfer. Damping Springs are used on the clutch assembly for a smooth power transition during acceleration, optimizing your available torque.
