Torque Converter Question
 
I have a 2003 quad cab 1500 5.7 with a approximately 104k miles on it. I use my truck to tow a small toyhauler trailer and drive it occassionly to the store or around town. I'm wondering if there would be any benifit or down fall to changing the torque converter. I'm wondering if it would benifit me when towing but I worried mostly about the milage issue. I don't have any problems with the truck now but I'm noy looking to create any either. Any input on this subject would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks
Brian

A higher stall torque converter is a torque multiplier but for towing, it's a bit hard on the engine and trans.

No problem. If you want a little more towing grunt, go for gears instead.
