Torque Convertors for 1998 - 2002 Dodge 5.9L 24V Cummins
Did you know you can increase your fuel economy by installing
a BD or Banks performance torque converter on your Dodge 5.9L Cummins? That's
right, stock automatic transmissions are designed to slip into gear for a smooth
driving experience. This slipping will cause premature torque converter failure,
loss of horsepower, and loss of fuel economy. Our Performance torque converters
are designed to maximize your power distribution to the ground. The BD and Banks
converters double the amount of lock up clutch material of a stock unit. BD
furnace brazes the turbine and impellor fins to prevent internal leakage, turbine
and lock up piston are balanced separately and then as a complete assembly.
So basically on the street, you'll notice a more positive engagement in drive,
enhanced low-speed drivability, less engine rpm and better fuel economy.
