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.

This is a great upgrade for any truck that sees serious duty, says Ian at Xtreme4x4. Watch and see why the Banks Billet Torque Converter can help prevent clutch failure, converter failure, and slippage.
