ATS Five Star Torque Converter

ATS Five Star Torque Converter

The ATS Five Star is a revolutionary Torque Converter that utilizes all of the technologies of a traditional torque converter plus the innovative ATS Viscous Clutch Drive. The ATS viscous clutch drive is the heart of the ATS Five Star Torque Converter.

The Viscous Clutch Drive characteristic, along with the fluid-coupling portion of the torque converter share in the transfer of power through the torque converter. Unlike other torque converters that rely on fluid transfer from the impeller to the turbine via the stator, the Five Star utilizes viscous energy that transfers rotational energy from the engine to the transmission. When the Torque Converter Clutch is commanded to lock up, the 5 clutch plates provide a 100% mechanical engagement ensuring no plate slippage during lock up, even at power levels in excess of 2000 foot pounds of torque! We're so confident in the Five Star that it is backed by the only 3-year 150,000-mile warranty in the business.

Some of the features of the Five Star Torque Converter are:

Full Billet Steel Construction in place of cheap steel stamping
5 Disk friction surface with Patented Square Flank Drive
Stall speed is perfectly matched to engine torque curve
Mixed-Flow stator works with Viscous Clutch Drive maximizing torque multiplication
Fully welded impeller and turbine vane section
Oversized high load thrust bearings in place of plastic washers

The ATS CoPilot and Commander have been developed to provide control over converter lockup in your vehicle. Factory computers are programmed to disengage lockup under many conditions that often inhibits the performance of the transmission. With a Five Star Torque Converter and the Co-Pilot or Commander in place, these non-lockup torque converter situations are no longer an issue.

ATS High Performance Transmissions are designed to handle heavy loads and high horsepower. When towing extreme loads you need a transmission that delivers positive shifts with out the hard shift that is commonly associated with performance transmissions. All rebuilt ATS high performance transmissions include the following features:

Our fully rebuilt, dyno tested ATS High Performance Valve Body, High Volume Pump, Heavy Duty Gear Train, Extreme Duty Clutch Pack and other proprietary components.
Our heavy duty transmission pan to provide increased lube volume, cooling capacity and strengthen the large case from excessive flexing. High stress areas of case are reinforced - Reduces chance of stress cracks.
Critical bolt and thread holes are inserted - Relieves pulled threads or bolts.
Valve Body surface is machined flat - Ensures against hydraulic leaks.
The entire hydraulic system is redesigned and calibrated specifically for the Diesel engine, Diesels require a unique calibration to ensure the engine is in it's optimal operation range.
External surface of case is sealed - Reduces corrosion and fatigue.

For customers pulling extreme loads or customers with high mileage transmissions, we recommend our high performance rebuilt transmission along with a new Five Star Torque Converter. When looking for the ultimate in performance, combine our Co-pilot lockup Controller with our HD Transmission and Torque Converter. The ATS Transmission, Five Star Converter, and Co-Pilot electronic transmission module is the ideal setup when using an Exhaust Brake, or with a modified engine. When the Five Star Viscous Clutch Drive torque converter and Co-Pilot are used together the efficiency rating of the transmission is increased. This increases MPG in most cases.

ATS Billet Flex Plates






ATS Billet Flex Plates

ATS offers this Billet Flexplate upgrade option for the 1994-2006 Cummins-Powered Dodge Ram. As horsepower and pulling weights increase, wear and tear also increases. For trucks with upgraded power or trucks that pull very heavy loads, this is the perfect add on to a high performance transmission package.

All ATS flex plates come with an SFI Certification.
