What About Torque?

Majority of our discussions, if not all, are about adding horsepower. Okay...now, how do we go about increasing torque more so than horse. Torque is what gets us off the line, and horse is what wins the race. Already have a good hole shot, but I want an awesome hole shot. One that feels like your your head is about to pop off your shoulders. I want more POWER power, as well as horsepower. Anybody have any thoughts?

Yes, I do love my TC! It is my favorite mod so far. If you're looking to increase your short time a stall converter is the ticket and gears wouldn't hurt if you dont' mind the MPG loss.

I don't know of a way to increase hp without increasing torque as horsepower is a function of torque: HP = (TQ*RPM)/ 5252

Therefore, it's actually your torque curve not falling on its face in the upper RPMs that wins races.

OK, so WHO makes a good stall converter for our automatic tranny? Is the triple-lock a stall converter?

Don't know much about the triple-lock, but there is some info on the HTC home page.

I went with the APS. Rumor has it TCI is also making converters for the 545RFE.
