The Torque Converter
SunCoast Allison 1000 torque converters come in many varieties, from heavy hauling, sled pulling, drag racing, to daily driving. Here at SunCoast we design and manufacture all of our torque converters in house. Because of this unique advantage SunCoast can supply almost any request in regards to stall speed or torque multiplication. All of our SunCoast Allison triple disc converters are outfitted with a heavy duty forged billet steel cover and give unbeatable lock up performance.
All of the SunCoast Allison 1000 torque converters come standard with custom pump and turbine modifications (in house). SunCoast also Tig Welds each individual furnace brazed fin for improved reinforcement. The SunCoast Allison billet triple disc converter also comes standard with our proprietary trapezoidal clutch teeth.
This SunCoast Allison billet SFI certified billet flexplate replaces the factory flex plate with an improved billet steel one piece design. This eliminates the weak factory flex plate. This replacement Allsion flex plate is a must with the high torque in conjunction with a better designed torque converter that can transfer torque with no slip. The felxplate is bolted to the crankshaft and then the torque converter to the flex plate. This one piece billet flex plate is SFI certified to 29.3.
Note: A SFI certified flexplate is required on drag racing vehicles running 11.99 and quicker the 1/4 mile and 7.49 and quicker in the 1/8 mile, or any vehicle exceeding 135mph. In 2008 it was changed from the 29.1 SFI specification to the 29.3 specification for automatic transmissions for diesel applications. The new rules for the flex plate require that the material cannot be stamped metal as are many OEM flex plates.
Sleeved C2 Clutch hub
On the Category 2 SunCoast 600 horsepower transmissions we use a factory C2 hub that utilizes a billet sleeve for added strength and reliability.
The Input Shaft
The input shaft is the first thing to go south with the Allison transmission. This Allison billet input shaft is built to withstand everything you can throw at it. This new Allison billet input shaft is manufactured from 9310 Vacumelt steel which increases torsional fatigue strength by over 50%. The SunCoast Allison billet input shaft is machined with a larger radius at the turbine spline for added strength. This a must for vehicles that are lifted with larger wheels and tires, for heavy towing and hauling, and vehicles with aftermarket turbos.
New internal wiring harness
Every build here at SunCoast reliability is our number one priority. Each one of our (Category) Allison rebuild kits comes with a new internal wiring harness. As the transmission continues to age, the plastic connectors become brittle and will break during disassembly. This often leaves builders scrambling around looking for a replacement last minute. This is a new GM harness with all new connectors.
