Dropped the truck off at Jones Diesel yesterday. From what Iíve talked with them, and driving it around a bit to see how itís acting, pretty sure that the torque converter is toast. They are getting it shipped to Goerend to get rebuilt ASAP. Sounds like a pretty quick turnaround to get it rebuilt.
Going to upgrade to the extreme clutch in the torque converter. The guys Iíve talked with said itís pretty much a must in higher horsepower applications. Locks up firmer, and helps dissipate heat better as well.
Also ordered a DHD lock up box. That should be here later this week. Canít wait to get that installed, so that I have the peace of mind that the converter is staying locked.
Heads are showing up on Thursday. Not sure if Iím gonna have time to swap them out before the truck show though. Thinking about it, that might be a good thing. That would give me an opportunity to dyno it at the truck show, then get the heads swapped and put it on the dyno again at G&R Dyno Days, to see how much of a difference they make.
