Default Torque Converter

Taking a vote,

Next mod is a new(and better) torque converter for my 2012. Mine seems to be acting up a bit so I figured no better time than now.


Circle D?
TCI?
Alternate brands?

Let me know what you guys think and any recommendations, please.

Thanks

I'll be going with an Edge 2800-3000 stall converter as well. Oh and a VB too

I've had my Edge 2800 for about a year now and it's for sure the best mod yet. What stage VB are ya'll going with? What are the benefits?

I'll be going with the stage 3 VB. It makes the trans shift quicker/harder which actually means there is less chance for it to slip which in turn is beter for your trans as a whole.

I've been told not to bother with the valve body unless your racing these trucks. I've heard it more then once so any more input would be great.

I've not heard this. I've heard it helps if you do race but I've seen from multiple people who have been happy with the stronger shifts that they recommend it. I like to drive my truck pretty hard and I do plan on going to the track every so often so thats why I plan on getting one.
