Vigilante 9 1/2'' torque converters are tremendously efficent for daily drivers looking to enhance the performance of their cars without sacrificing drivability. The "best of both worlds" as it is referred to, becomes a reality. The 9 1/2'' series is capable of withstanding horsepower ranges from stock up to 1600 depending on the design and assembly. The average build time is 3 to 4 working days. The stall speed is available from 2400-5800 rpms in most applications.
Precision Industries starts the production of these chevy torque converters with a 98 pound piece of billet steel that we machine in our CNC equipment ending up with a one piece front cover weighing 12 pounds depending on what torque converter series we are building. The billet front cover is one of many reasons that enable Precision Industries to produce a superior product over many of our competitors that try to imitate and copy our product designs. We prefer machining our billet front covers over purchasing forged steel covers due to balancing, excessive weight and density problems that can arise from forgings in torque converters. One of the benefits of our cover is increased clutch surface area by as much as five times over OEM specifications. The increase in clutch surface area along with the unique clutch lining we use ensures that no matter what the application you can retain the lock-up feature for efficiency without durability issues.
