Just got off the phone with David from 'Lextreme'.
He stated he can upgrade our RAV4 torque converters for a higher rpm stall speed and improve the performance. He has NOT done a RAV4 as of yet but feels confident he can do it.
Sooooo, I'm willing to be a guinea pig but need to get my hands on a 'core' torque converter. Gonna check on Ebay but if anyone else here has one they are willing to let go, I'll consider this as well.
If anyone has any good stories or horror stories to tell about Lextreme and their products, please feel free to share. Just thought I let peeps know where I'm headed before I go off the edge with nitrous or something.
Oh...and one more thing. If/once I get this done, you know I'm going to report the results. If the results are favorable and others are willing to follow suite, I can sell my torque converter (Dunno for how much) to another person so they can send it off as a core as well. Did this back in the day at a Subaru site when the people involved wanted to minimize any downtime. ........I recommend getting a tranny cooler installed because this mod could increase tranny temperature, even if it is not necessarily needed.
Disregard this here. It's for my own personal reference (E-Shopping).
Precision Industries -Dragon Torque Converters...
***I just called these guys and left a message since they are being compared to Lextreme on the net***
****Persnoal Note #2: Flash stall rpm was observed to be 2400rpm on the stock torque converter. ****
