This is big news for those drag racers out there who are running a high horsepower combo and backing their engine with a torque converter. FTI Performance Introduces the Gen 3 XPM Billet Bolt Together Torque Converter Line which is the most tunable, most interchangeable, and most user friendly ultra high performance torque converter on the market. Because each piece is interchangeable, the racer can carry multiple stators, turbines, pumps etc to make their combo work to its best ability and they can do it without having to wait on parts!
This truly is an innovation from FTI and one that we believe racers will take advantage of. Back when the torque converter started to make major inroads into ultra-high horsepower drag racing, the common refrain was that “you can’t tune them like a clutch…” but the real truth is that now you basically can. Amazing!
