TH350/400 "Boss Hog" Street Bandit Product Description:
The Street Bandit Series Converters are designed to handle as much as 650 horse power. Some of the comparable models will only handle up to 350 horse power.
ACC Performance puts the much larger Torrington type incased bearings through out the converter where they are needed. The Torrington bearings will handle a lot more raw power and abuse that the higher horsepower engines and transmissions of today produce. Some of the competition uses a smaller needle type bearing. Needle bearings are not incased, which makes them susceptible to picking up trash in transmission fluid, which can lead up to heat build up and failure.
We also weld-up and four corner tack-weld our turbine and impeller fins in order to maintain the highest strength. This will stop fin degradation or deformity. We also have custom engineered our turbine hubs in order to maintain the highest quality, strength, and durability. Some of the competitors use a chromemoly steel turbine hub that does not weld very well. If improperly welded, it can cause converter failure and or damage to your transmission.
The stators are built with high flow vents and channels for greater cooling in order to handle the much greater power and heat ranges.
Some of the competitors use a dual bolt pattern on their converter in order for one converter to fit more applications.
ACC Performance converters are engineered with a single bolt pattern for the rotating mass. This makes ACC Performance Torque Converters surprisingly light, keeping the weight of the converter off of the rotating mass of the motor. This will free up your motor and allow it to rev-up through the RPM range quicker, helping your engine put more power to the ground. Some of the competitors use a dual bolt pattern converter to eliminate multiple part numbers, i.e./ th350 & 400’s. These transmissions using the same converter with a dual bolt pattern, will add 3 to 4 pounds of weight to the converter. This adds weight to the ro-tating mass of the engine, costing you nothing but horsepower & torque. We at ACC are in the performance business and try to maximize horsepower at every level. We think you do too! NOTE: The Street Bandit series converters are NOT designed to handle the extreme shock and abuse of Nitrous Oxide or Trans-Breaks. Call ACC Performance for more information.
