If you want to make big power out of your ATS-V, Tapout wants to make sure you have all the right parts to keep you going. For those that like to go drag racing, and whose ATS-V is an automatic, the torque converter is going to experience a significant amount of stress if you’ve tuned your car for more power.
Stock ATS-V torque converter fins are not brazed and when you crank things up past 500 whp on a sticky tire you’re asking for trouble with the OEM units. Any kind of shock or spin and hook could create big problems. Our converters begin as brand-new OEM units, which are reworked to raise stall and flash speeds by approximately 1,000 rpm. The converter fins are brazed, and other internals are significantly reinforced. The result is a converter that we expect to handle at least 900 whp. You’ll have full streetability and lockup features are retained which makes this the ideal converter for street and/or strip use.
