--- Art Carr Rockcrawling Torque Converters ---

We are sponsored by Art Carr Performance Products and strongly believe in their quality. Over the last few months we have worked to develop a torque convertor for trail and competitive rockcrawling. This was done through videos, phone conversations, and having Art Carr staff attend the last UROC Pro event. Together, we feel we have come up with a great product. We use this convertor in our vehicle and are extremely impressed with the performance.



Custom designed and built for your application.

High enough stall so you don't fight the brakes on downhills.

Gradual throttle response with no harsh catch like a high rev drag racing convertor.

9.5" diameter and light weight lets the engine rev a lot faster.

More efficient unit than most stock designs so additional cooling is not required.

3:1 torque multiplication - makes for a very responsive tranny.



This is a great way to get more performance out of your engine and transmission. Our sponsorship deal allows us to sell Art Carr Products cheaper than direct pricing (sounds cheazy but makes sense). These units range in price from approximately $350 - $600 depending on application. PM with your information for a price.


Also, please PM me for prices on ALL Art Carr Products including the ultra short C-4 that bolts to Chevy and Ford. Chances are, I can what you are looking for to your doorstep for less.

Do you have a setup with the C4 or other tranny that this TC works with that will work behind a jeep 4.0L I6? Does the C4 work with the AA chevy adapters to jeep engines for example? I know you had a thread awhile back where you mentioned that you have a line on custom built C4s. Any chance you can get a custom bellhousing with that? I have a bellhousing with my T18 that goes from that ford pattern (4 bolts) to the AMC engine pattern which could work depending on the shaft length of the C4 etc.

I'd love to run a nice short auto in my YJ buggy, but I'm commited to the stroked 4.6L I've put in it too

3:1 torque multiplication sounds pretty sweet.
Thanks

I am going to have to do some research on that and I will get back to you. I think short wheelbase Jeeps are where this transmission belongs. Remember that for now, the only output is a 27 spline so you pretty much have to put an Atlas behind it.

5.0 Exploder motor, built manual shift/reverse pattern C4, stock EB20 rolling on 36" tires and 4.10s. Jeep weighs around 4400lbs. What can you do for me on a price for a torque converter?

Thanks,

Ken

The converter you need is the one pictured. $350. If you are interested, I can get all your info and come up with the right design.

There are conversion bellhousing for the C-4 to bolt up to Chevy motors (4.3, 350, etc.) and late model ford (4.6, 5.4) but nothing to AMC. The bellhousing is 5 bolt and the T-18 bellhousing won't work. Unfortunately, the simple Chevy / Ford T-18 conversion does not work with this tranny.

PM me a price for a C4 built for rockcrawling and a converter ....need a bellhousing for a 5.0 also. Does Art Carr install adapters? I need a dana 300 to bolt up to the c4, but it doesn't matter if it's the long adapter or whatever.
