my oh my.. L99 burnout with yank torque converter installed

wish I had a video.. well today I put my yank converter in and my SW headers back system... burnouts... well just hammer it and you get all of first, stutter (rev limiter lol) then ALL of second.

needless to say that's all this bad boy needed to be unreal.. I have more for it when I get the time again... but man, now I don't miss driving my modded 02's around too much..

I will try to get a video if I can some time.

So basically it's the stock tranny holding some of these guys back? Could some tuning
on the stock tranny help out these auto guys?

not the tranny itself, the torque converter is and always will be the biggest bang for the $$ for any auto car...

A TC will of course indeed wake up any automatic but a tune will turn off torque managment and will for sure wake this car up as well.

I tuned out all the TM and changed a few things a week or two ago.. it helped but wasn't impressive... now THIS and the exhaust.. the car is now impressive.. Yank 3600, most will want the 3200, but I am used to converters, and this isn't all that bad really.

Call Yank and have them build one to suit your needs.

Yank is a great converter, but remember they are single disc and are not recommended to be locked at WOT...locking at WOT will assist you roll racers by improving MPH vs ET.

My triple disc VIG picked up MPH in the 1/4 when I started locking it earlier...
It doesn't do much for ET, but it will close the MPH gap vs a 6 speed manual car.

Yank vs VIG...you can't go wrong either way.

I just called Yank and had it sitting here before the car...

as for retune, buy your own setup for tuning, or go to a shop.. I use efi live.

a converter is what connects the engine to tranny... basically a slipper clutch.. and allows the slip until locked.. the higher the stall speed only means it may slip a little more, to the higher rpm, where the engine makes more torque/power which in turn makes the car way quicker. It does create a bit more heat, not an issue but just an FYI..

I'll ask some questions I'm sure at least a few people would like to know:
What's the price?
Is it street legal?
Will it void warranties from most dealers?
Is it okay for a daily driver?
Thanks!

i have the YANK SS3200 and it is a night and day difference from the stock converter, there is also major trans tuning to get the new converter to work correctly, i use hp tuners

I think you're getting an "If you have to ask, you shouldn't try it." response..My guess.
