This new SunCoast Pro-Loc TH400 Torque Converter is manufactured from a solid piece of 7075 T6 billet aluminum plate versus round bar like so many other manufacturers. We take this extra step in manufacturing from solid billet plates due to the superior heat-treating characteristics. When using round bar we see the tempering is not as solid in the center as solid plate. Using this type of material increases manufacturing cost initially as well as machine operation time, however a necessary step when considering the high inertia and its effects on ballooning the converter.
The SunCoast Pro-Loc Bolt-Together converter also includes our patent-pending Zero Drag Lockup technology. With our SunCoast Zero-Drag Lockup technology you can expect the following benefits:
The modular clutch basket assembly allows several clutch configurations for maximum tunability. The user can choose between 1-5 double sided Zero Drag clutches. This new modular design allows for unmatched time savings for servicing between rounds to accommodate changing track conditions. Turbine clearance is redesigned to a fixed clearance with a tighter tolerance, reducing slip and allowing for a more efficient torque converter. This fixed turbine clearance also improves consistency and allows two thrust bearings to be used versus the factory phenolic thrust washers.
The sprag assembly is also replaced with our SunCoast Pro-Loc XL sprag that increases bearing roller surface by an additional 15%, improving reliability.
Another great feature of this converter is its 3-pass design, allowing for individual control of the converter circuit. This is much more effective than a simple two-pass lock-up system where you do not have unique control of how the converter lock-up is brought in. This is can be pulse-width modulated for a softer hit to the tires if desired.
This converter is manufactured with provisions for 12 bolt holes to the flex plate. All of this is clamped together with 24 12 point 5/16 nuts and captive SAFE-D studs.
This new billet torque converter also comes with a serviceable brass pilot that can be developed for any needed converter spacing. We have also taken the liberty of numbering the torque sequence to help reassembly be a breeze.
SunCoast also utilizes its exclusive one-piece pad, maintaining rigidity and strength. This new SunCoast Pro-Loc TH400 Torque Converter is proudly designed, engineered, and manufactured in-house in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, by American workers.
