Banks Billet™ Torque Converter

PICKUP with 47RE/48RE automatic: With its multi-disc torque converter clutch and indestructible forged-steel billet housing that maintain solid contact without flexing, the new Banks Billet Torque Converter with RaceLock® technology provides more than double the torque capacity of stock (1600 lb-ft vs. 700 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 5.9L Cummins torque band to deliver the maximum power to the wheels.

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.
