Choosing A Torque Converter
We'll be honest: We're far from experts on torque converters. Sure, we know their basic operation principles (fluid in an impeller is spun and transferred to the turbine, multiplying torque in the process), but like most of you we had no idea what torque converter to run in our Dynamic Racing Transmission C4. We left it in the capable hands of the people who make them every day. With some basic knowledge of your engine specs, driving style, and so on, the crew at TCT can put together the right converter for your automatic Mustang. We ended up with TCT's 10-inch "street and strip" converter with a 3,000-rpm stall speed. Whether it's for simple cruising or something snappier, TCT can build just what you need. The photos show the inner workings of our 10-inch converter.
