Billet™ Torque Converter by Banks®. Banks Billet Torque converter is built to take triple the torque of the factory torque converter. True billet construction and triple-disc clutch can handle your modified engine in the toughest service.
- Billet cover doesn't flex
- Furnace-brazed fins don't leak
- Cooler running
- Triple-disc clutch
- Faster acceleration
Most torque converters - even big-buck "race" converters - are built up of welded sheet metal. Under heavy loads, the thin sheet metal can bend and even tear free of the flex-plate mounting bolts, and that ain't good. Banks Billet Torque converters use a true billet CNC-machined cover that can take it. And unlike most converters that use crimped turbine fins, the Banks unit is 100% furnace-brazed. That means not only superior strength and durability, but less leakage around the crimped joints and less wasted horsepower from ATF that's leaking internally.
The Billet Converter's torque converter is better matched to the Duramax's torque curve, stripping nearly a full second from your 0-60 times! Add in the huge torque capacity of the three-element TCC assembly, which just won't slip no matter how much torque you generate, and that means longer clutch life and cooler transmission temps.
Banks® Exhaust Systems are US-made, each unit is precisely dyno-tuned and shaped to fit selected model and production year vehicle and deliver great increase in torque and horsepower. Even the polished muffler tip is built with T-304 premium stainless steel. Each exhaust system has an easy bolt-on installation and requires no modifications to the vehicle for the installation.
