Towing Converters & Billet Covers

Custom built torque converters from PTC Texas will withstand the stress of towing heavy trailers and RVs. Our special towing converters prevent downtime and save you money, because a weak converter will ultimately result in transmission problems in any towing application. In fact, component failure is often a result of high transmission fluid temperatures and overloading, which will eventually lead to transmission slippage, start-up shudder and shuddering when climbing a hill.

Specialty Towing Upgrades

Factory-installed torque converters do not have a billet cover, which is essential to resisting external torsion and thrust stress, as well as the internal hydraulic pressure created within a torque converter. When we rebuild factory-installed converters for vehicles that do heavy hauling, we often find broken fins and worn bearings and seals. When this deterioration occurs in a torque converter, your truck will continue to lose power and the ability to pull heavy loads efficiently.

Power You Can Rely On

Improve the drivability and durability of your truck. We use a billet cover, hand braze the fins to ensure their integrity, and replace bearings and seals. With these changes, you will see an immediate improvement in acceleration when pulling a heavy load. Billet covers are available for both diesel and gas applications. We can change your stall speed to optimize the 0-30 mph speed range when pulling heavy loads.

Differences Between Gas & Diesel

Gas applications require a torque converter built with higher stalls. We can raise the stall of your converter to meet the needs of your engine and transmission to improve acceleration when hauling a heavy load. Diesel applications require a lower stall speed. A diesel engine is a torque engine. It has immediate power. There is no waiting around for your engine to reach the RPM like there is with a gas engine to begin pulling your load.
