Well put. The 6L80E has more mass to turn, so more parasitic loss.

My C5 corvette bracket car ran 11.50's all day long with 346 rwhp with a FTI 4200 stall on M/T drag radials,

and the BatCar in my sig runs mid 10's daily driver.


Please identify the gen v car that has gained .5-.7 in the 1/4 with ONLY adding your converter. I've yet to see proof to these claims and if this was truly the case there would be hundreds of members praising then. Right now it's only you.

Work me up a deal on a convertor for my 2012 LFX nitrous car, 6L50E auto and I will post before and after numbers. I have plenty of all motor and nitrous passes for the BEFORE convertor change numbers. I also have the suspension and tires ALREADY on the car to handle the convertor for the AFTER runs. BMR suspension rear diff bushings. toe ends, links, cradle bushings, tunnel brace and M/T 305/20 drag radials ALREADY on the car.

Consistant: 60' 1:71 - 1:74, 12:71 -12:75 @ 106.33 - 106.99 on the bottle (100HP setting @1000 PSI pressure)
All Motor 60' 1:93 - 1:96, 13:91 - 13:95 @ 101.06 - 101.73 on all motor leaving at an idle and flashing convertor on the last yellow.
Trifecta Tune on the car so I am not sure if I can get the transmission tuning needed for lock-up clutch control with them or not????

Emailing all the customers we can to come in and post before and after time slips.

But your biased is well known. I'll put track time and runs down the drag strip as well as championships won against your little bit of test & tune experience any day. I don't come into your threads/post and call BS on you....

Most decent converters will net you a gain of .3-.5 at the high end. Like most did say, a lot of people couple the converter with other modifications. I know whenever we do a torque converter here, we also do the transmission & engine tuning along with it. So I'll see that larger gain because of the tuning involved. Also, depending on modifications done you'll see greater gains too. We just took a Vette to the track with stock converter running 1.85-1.89 60' times, now we're dead on at 1.50 60' times with the addition of the Vigilante (PI) 2800 stall.

Pro Torque and FTI are great converters, and what we sell. However, there are plenty other brands out there that will get the job done also.

Supercharged SS is a bit more than your occassional test and tuner, he also goes to private track rentals...

Wheres the proof? Enough of your standard copy and paste BS. Ill ask again... Why has NO ONE EVER backed up this claim in 4 years... Maybe because its false info.

I could care less about any championships. You come across as the guy the sells the Sham Wow. Lots of hype, little performance.

You are welcome in any thread I create or to comment on whatever I say. I HAVE proof of what my car is doing. It's well documented.

Ill be glad to retract my statement after I am proven wrong. So hurry up and find a mythical gen v that gained .7. If they were really your customer you'd already have the info on hand. The fact you have to email these so called customers is ridiculous.

Maybe one day Ill start posting about all the little league championships I won throughout my past.

I'm sure the FTI converter is just as good as all the others. Just not mythical unicorn gd.

Both excellent and have awesome service and great reputations. I'd have no problem using either.

PI has a 9.5" converter. Stall is around 3200. I'd like a 3600 though... hmmmm.

Pretty pathetic that you have to compare little league trophy's to professional drag racing. Have you ever raced in a real event? (Divisonal, National or World in either NHRA or IHRA. The proof is all over the place and you only called me out late yesterday. I sent messages to customers with them to post up time slips and before and after....and I'll put FTI up against any comparable converter on the market. Have run most all through the years with good results, but nothing has ever performed like the proper built to match FTI.

LOL...how come anytime someone questions your post they have a biased opinion or a hidden agenda ? you ever think you are just a little paranoid. If you state something to be factual then you as a professional should be able to back up what you are saying . also how is this YOUR thread ? and I would put jamie's track time and experience with the 5th gen against yours any day . im done with this baby someone else can spank it ......

LOL!!! I am backing it up.....it has been 1/2 day since called out. There will be examples, and call FTI directly as well if you want to take the uninformed stance. He attacked, I responded. I did not call him out, just the opposite.

All day long the average gain traction dependent is a minimum of .3 to as high as .7, and .5 is the average. I have never attacked Jamie in all the years on here....just the opposite, but call me out publically and I will defend myself....would not expect anyone else to do less, but you are way out of your league here when it comes to drag racing. I may be as clueless about road racing as most, but this is something I have more experience, more accomplishments, and more related REAL championships personally or my drivers through the years than most anyone on this site period.
