Coming soon!!! I just ordered my 2800 stall torque converter from Joe Rivera at Pro Torque.
Should be here at the end of this week or the beginning of next week. Told Joe that I will be installing it as soon as it arrives. Friends over at FCCT are going to do the install for me. *Ferrari Custom Car and Truck" in Sterling, Va.


I know Srg. Stanko and a few others got it done, gonna see what the butt o meter feels like after the install.

I'll keep you guys updated with pictures and information as it becomes available! *fingers crossed* can't wait! :D

Thanks Joe!

You do realize that our factory torque converters stall 3000 rpm don't you?

I just had my VB / Torque converter changed out on my G35 and it was about 700$ with new fluids. about 500ish in labor.

Not sure if that helps- but should give you an idea.

thanks a lot man, thats also what my guy quoted me (500) I think im going to change all of the fluids (tranny , rear end, t case) to royal purple or some sort of high performance synthetic fluid.


Whats yalls opinion on changing the fluids to all synthetic (royal purple)at the same time? Recommend anything special? Or any other good tips or things to do while im in there torn down. . . any input would be appreciated!

Ok Jake....my Take:
Rear Differential:

Good idea with the Royal Purple now that the gears are worn in.NAG1 Transmission:

Use ONLY the Mopar fluid. It was specially designed for the friction clutches and has the expansion rate (HUGE) needed for this unit. DON'T put in Royal Purple. Also, be VERY careful to put the correct amount of Mopar Trans. fluid in. You need a "test" dipstick and you need you be able to read the trans. fluid temp.in drive (a dashhawk will work). If you put in too little or too much you WILL smoke the friction clutches due to cavitation. Too little fluid causes air to be picked up in the filter, too much fluid causes air by churning the fluid with the gears, even though there is a float to help prevent this.Transfer case:

Good idea to change fluid. However, the friction clutches are very touchy and you should ONLY use the CLEAR Mopar fluid made for this transfer case. DON'T put in the Royal Purple.Hope this helps!:)

Wow! I really am glad i asked before i just we ahead and put it in. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain that. Do you know the weight that i would use off the top of your head (in royal purple) ? Any other tips or things i should do when im under there?

Thanks again

In the Rear diff (after the gears are worn in):
Royal Purple SAE 75W-90
Exceeds GL-4 & GL-5

Bill:

I thought 75W-140 was spec'd for the front and rear diff. Does it matter if we use 75W-90 instead?
