If the performance of a high-stall converter with the driveability of a low-stall converter is what you're looking for, then the PTGM18/258HS by Phoenix Transmission Products is the converter for you. With a flash stall speed of up to 3,200 rpm, it drives like a much tighter converter until you put your foot into it, then hang on! Combining a 10-inch, fully furnace-brazed bowl and turbine-hardened splines and drive hub with anti-ballooning technology, it has a fullsized 298mm heavy-duty clutch assembly and damper for solid, reliable lockup durability. It fits all 700-R4 and '93-98 4L60E transmissions without a removable bellhousing.
