If I were you I would PM sponsor "Jackthebear3" and ask him about his Super single converter. I'm running it and it is amazing.

That is the number of lock-up clutches in the converter. When you start making higher hp/tq. numbers, the cluthces in the TC are more prone to slip under a load. With a higher # of lock-up cluthces they have less of a tendencey to slip. BUT, there are some companies that make a good single disk that will hold lots of power.

A good single disc with multiple clutch faces on it is the way to go IMHO. less rotation weight and less chance of breaking input shafts. Also triple disc converters really lug the motor down on lock up and can kill you rpms and boost levels when they lock up.
check these out for one of the best convereters out there

That's called loading the engine and if you have enough power it WILL NOT 'kill' boost. Also RPM drop during lock-up is based on the stator design not the number of lock up clutches.

I'll agree with you on the single disc. Single disc 89%.
