PRC Torque Converters
Description:

Every PRC Torque Converter has the following features

HARDENED HUB

This is a hardened hub for durability and a clean fit with your transmission seal.  We set very strict tolerances with the run-out on our torque converters.  This measurement is taken from the hub in conjunction with the pilot.  All of our torque converters are set at + or - 0.005 to 0.03.  This will give you better overall performance and a longer last torque converter.

IMPELLER IS WELDED

The Impeller is also known as the pump.  This is the side of the converter that goes toward the transmission.  We weld the fins in to draw the metal.  This also makes the fins much stronger than other methods.  We also bend some of the fins to control the fluid in order to reach a desired stall.  The impeller works using the spinning force from the engine and the fins to pump the fluid.  The impellers use the fins in order to direct the fluid to reach a certain pressure to drive the transmission.

STATOR

We use many different pitched fined stators in order to reach the many different stalls we offer.  We rarely cut the stator because of the slippage that can be created.  The sprag and race are hardened to give long life and fight heat as well.  Our stators are built to handle very high horse-powered engines.  By obtaining the stall using this method, it allows our torque converters to put more of your engines power to the ground.  It also makes our parts create less heat, making them more efficient.

WELDED TURBINES

Our turbines are tightened and then welded just as our impeller is.  This makes the fins in the turbine tighten up in order to take a lot of abuse.  Our turbines also feature a hardened spline.  These features allow our parts to take more abuse and gain durability.  We build our parts to last under extreme duress.

FIBER WASHER PLACEMENT

Every where possible, we are trying to take out the weak spots in all of the converters.  In some of the converters we have replaced the fiber washers/spacers with an Aircraft Quality Aluminum spacer that can handle well beyond the rest of the converter.

OVER SIZED BEARINGS

We have gotten rid of all of the waffle bearings and have replaced them with high quality and high strength bearings.  In our high stall converters, we use a heavy duty bearing that comes out of a stamping press.  This means it can take the shocking, extreme abuse that is demanded by serious, high horsepower engines.

HIGH TECH WELDS

Our welds are a military style of positive charged weld.  We MIG weld all of our converters with a fusion type.  This means we get a hot weld that sprays the wire to the metal with such a high temp that it actually makes the weld stronger than the other ones.  We do not cut any corners with our welds on our converters.
