The 6R80 transmission has proven to be a reliable workhorse for Ford. The converter clutch in these can sometimes be the downfall when the vehicle is exposed to more demanding driving conditions such as towing, off roading, and high performance driving.
SunCoast is proud to bring you our 6R80 triple disc billet torque converter. This torque converter features furnaced brazed fins for added stability. The factory thrust washers for the stators are upgraded to new torrington thrust bearings.
The factory apply piston which is known for deflection is replaced by a new billet lockup apply piston. This piston aids in the efforts to improve the lockup circuit within this unit. This new piston is applying over 100 square inches of improved friction surface. This increase in friction surface is also complimented with a much better friction coefficient. This improved friction material also dissipates heat much more efficiently than the factory material.
SunCoast has also upgraded the turbine assembly by adding a billet balloon plate. The billet balloon plate ensures no chance of unconformity during higher RPMs.
The cover that the clutches apply to is also upgraded to billet in this SunCoast 6R80 torque converter.
Whether it is heavy towing and off-roading or street/strip performance this SunCoast 6R80 torque converter is more than capable of getting the job done.
