PICKUP/EXCURSION with E4OD/4R100 automatic: With its multi-disc lockup clutch assembly and improved forged-steel billet housing that maintain solid contact without flexing, the new Banks Billet Torque Converter with RaceLock® technology provides far greater torque capacity than stock (1100 lb-ft vs. 740 lb-ft). And because the lockup clutch is slip-resistant, transmission fluid temperatures stay cooler and transmission life is prolonged. From its single-piece billet housing CNC-machined from forged steel to the furnace-brazed turbine and impeller, and from the furnace-brazed and hardened turbine hub to the hardened pump drive made of 4130 chrome-moly steel to withstand massive torque, the Banks Billet Torque Converter is built for precision, performance and long-lasting durability. It's meticulously designed to properly match the Ford's torque band to deliver the maximum power to the wheels and improve acceleration. The Banks Billet Torque Converter is also a smart upgrade for trucks modified for increased performance. The entire assembly is balanced and blueprinted for ultimate performance and smoothness.
For optimal automatic transmission performance, Banks recommends its TransCommand® to manage line pressure, provide sure and sturdy shifts, lower transmission fluid temperature and further improve transmission durability. For power upgrades to Fords with E40D or 4R100 transmissions, TransCommand is required.

This is a great upgrade for any truck that sees serious duty, says Ian at Xtreme4x4. Watch and see why the Banks Billet Torque Converter can help prevent clutch failure, converter failure, and slippage.
“Let someone else use his or her beloved truck as a proving ground. I will wait and purchase a proven product from a time-proven company such as Gale Banks Engineering.”
