The AFE 43-14011 F3 Torque Converter is the answer to putting your power to
the pavement. 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. This is
where the F3 torque converter comes in. Installing the 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),
increases in towing speeds, lower transmission fluid temperatures and a
more satisfying driving experience.
Customer Testimonial: “I did not realize how much power was being
lost prior to putting this on. In normal driving (empty truck), the
acceleration improvement was very noticeable, especially when getting
into 4th, 5th and 6th gears, it threw you into the back of the seat;
shifts were nice and crisp. When towing my 10,000 lb. trailer, grades
that in the past I could barely go 35-40 mph were now easily done at
50-55 mph.” Stuart M.
F3 Torque Converters Feature:
3-Clutch System: 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.
- Round Clutch Tips: Round clutch tips are used to optimize fit and clutch wear.
- Custom Stator: A custom designed stator (with one-way sprag clutch) is used for torque multiplication to stall speed.
- Stall Speed: 1200 RPM
- Torrington Thrust Bearing: F3 Converters come with Torrington thrust bearings for maximum strength replacing the stock OE plastic bushings.
- Billet Steel Front Cover: The
billet steel front cover is used for increased strength and durability
over the factory stamped steel cover. This Billet cover prevents
converter ballooning (failure) that is common with OE converters under
high torque conditions.
- Brazed Turbine Fins: The
turbine fins are responsible for transferring the torque from the
engine to the transmission. The F3 turbine fins are brazed for maximum
strength even under the harshest conditions and high torque transfer.
- Damping Springs: Damping
Springs are used on the clutch assembly for a smooth power transition
during acceleration, optimizing your available torque.
- Reinforced Housing: The one-piece stamp forged steel lid uses reinforced ribs for structural support and ultra-high torque capacity.
- Lifetime Warranty: The F3 torque converter comes with a limited lifetime warranty
