TripleLok™ Torque Converter

TripleLok torque converter  with hand built machined billet parts, not stamped. You won't find the welds that warp in this cover. I was impressed at the workmanship involved at ATS Diesel Performance in building a torque converter designed for high performance diesels and hauling the heavy loads we buy trucks for. The Colorado mountains are a real world test for diesels and automatic transmissions. If you drive through the Rockies on I-70 by the ski resorts, 11,000 ft. passes, and "truck runaway ramps," you'll notice how fast pickup truck diesels loaded to the max are flying past you in the left lane. Here trucks are modified, for more air, more exhaust and if you are in the majority, you need an upgraded automatic transmission.
ATS Diesel Performance,  Arvada Colorado,  acquired Advanced Turbo Systems, Salt Lake City Utah. Both companies specializing in diesel performance, now combine for a complete line of performance aftermarket accessories for pickup trucks and SUV's. Headquartered in Colorado......More....

After hearing Clint Cannon, president of ATS Diesel Performance on a Saturday radio show and hearing him speak before a crowd of Turbo Diesel Registry enthusiasts, I am sure I'm talking to "Mr. Transmission." And he's here in Colorado where extreme testing is part of our back yard. High altitudes are even harder on diesel engines and auto transmissions, which truck manufactures seem to forget about.Click to learn more
The TripleLok torque converter and optional valve body is designed to handle exhaust brakes needed on the fast side of the Rockies. Heavy duty trailer pulling and camper hauling, is why we buy diesels. Shifting a manual transmission behind a diesel isn't as much fun. Automatic transmissions take the work out of driving a diesel. Auto transmissions have come along way in the last 10 years for diesels. You didn't use to dare use an auto pulling heaving loads. As transmissions get better, the auto torque converter seems to be the weak link with factory torque converter. Under a load the factory  clutch inside the torque converter does slip causing heat  and debris to plug valves and ports damaging the tranny.

There is a reason why the truck manufactures have added automatic transmission temp gauges lately. They know things are gonna heat up and they want you managing the problem instead of them.

Improving your Trucks Transmission and Air Filter. With all this power in pickup truck heavy-duty diesels, automatic transmissions, which are the majority sold, need to be heavy-duty also. With an automatic transmission, the torque converter is the weakest link as is the clutch with a manual transmission. Check out my install review More...

So why not modify your tranny to be up to the task. If you modify your engine or haul the big loads, why wait until your torque converter shells out thru the rest of the transmission and the repair bill grows. Break downs on the road especially on the fast side of the mountains, or with a load of your favorite horses can ruin a good weekend and raise your blood pressure. Modern diesel trucks are a big investment. Folks are keeping their trucks longer like in the old days when my beard wasn't gray and leasing wasn't invented yet.

ATS Diesel Performance, upgrades many new truck automatic transmissions. Folks who modify their trucks power and those whom pull heavy trailers know the limitations of the factory transmissions. This 04 GMC dually with the Allison has just had the Complete Allison LCT-1000 Transmission Upgrade.

While your torque converter is locked up, your engine runs at a lower rpm and the transmission is cooler. Using another product from ATS Diesel Performance, the ATS TripleLok Commander can control when and how long your torque converter does lock up. With their TripleLok torque converter and all the other quality products found at ATS Diesel Performance, you will get the right advice on what your truck needs to keep you grinning. There is a reason you're addicted to the power of your diesel, finish your truck right and enjoy watching the odometer roll over and over...Even their website is top-notch. Click to learn. Comes with a great warranty too, 3 years even with that big trailer and chips you don't want to show your dealer.

When you call ATS customer support,  most often you get to talk to Mr. Transmission himself, Clint Cannon, president of ATS Diesel Performance.

Every wonder why a manual transmission gets better fuel mileage than an auto? Most auto's waste power through the fluid coupling by not locking up the torque converter sooner in the torque band. Then the factory torque converter clutch slips, loosing power, overheating and wasting fuel.

Besides making the best torque converter, ATS has the best website to learn about transmissions. It's nice to learn what your stock transmission is missing and how it works. Check out ATS University just click.
