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 Commander © has 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 ATS Commander © in place, these non-lockup torque converter situations are no longer an issue.

ATS CoPilot

Electronic Performance - ATS CoPilot

The ATS CoPilot provides you the ultimate in push-button control over when the torque converter locks up in your vehicle, allowing you to select the vehicle speed where the torque converter clutch will engage (lock up) and disengage. Your truck's factory programming doesn't initiate lock up until cruising speed and disengages lock up early under many conditions, inhibiting your truck's performance. The Co-Pilot resolves this issue by holding lock up offering better acceleration and cooler transmission running temperatures.

With the Co-Pilot is turned on, minimum speed for lock up is approximately 18mph. This safety feature removes worries of killing or lugging the engine, as there's no manual switching required to unlock the converter clutch when coming to a stop. With the power off, the controller reverts to factory control of converter lock up. By allowing the torque converter to stay locked up, the controller provides some engine braking even without an exhaust brake. The Co-Pilot compliments an exhaust brake perfectly and integrates seamlessly into any exhaust brake system by automatically commanding torque converter lock up when the exhaust brake is energized. This means a transfer of all of your exhaust brake's power to the transmission, giving a much more significant impact at the wheels. The ability to hold lock up during exhaust braking makes a night & day difference in your exhaust brake's end performance!

Install the Co-Pilot when you install an ATS Five Star Torque Converter and you've got the heavy duty construction and innovative design needed for the highest in reliability and performance from your torque converter.

Transmission Controller

ATS Select Shift Standalone Transmission Controller

Controlling the E4OD or 4R-100 transmission is now possible with the release of the ATS Select Shift Standalone Transmission Controller. The ATS Select Shift simply plugs into any Ford E4OD or 4R-100 Transmission, and allows for full control of the transmission.

Shift timing, lockup, and line pressure are fully laptop programmable. Tailoring the optimal strategy only takes a few hours to dial in the exact mapping for your vehicle. Add one to six adjustable analog potentiometers to adjust shift timing, lockup timing, shift quality and line pressure on the fly.

This is the most powerful, easy-to-use, plug-and-play transmission control system available today.

ATS Billet Flex Plates

ATS Billet Flex Plates

ATS offers this Billet Flexplate upgrade option for the Duramax Diesel. 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.

 


Transmission Cooling System

Transmission Cooling Systems

External Transmission Cooling Systems will help to keep your transmission running at optimal temperatures. Cooler flow is a key factor in keeping temperatures in check and the lubrication circuit is responsible for over 90% of transmission cooling. Transmission coolers must not restrict flow of fluid to and from the transmission and be able to extract heat efficiently. A self-regulating cooler allows the transmission fluid to pass through it under cool operating temperatures to allow gear train lubrication while still providing maximum cooling efficiency under extremely hot operating conditions.

A thermostatically controlled, fan-forced (reversible rotation), low pressure drop unit is the preferred choice when choosing an optimal transmission cooler for your vehicle. From the bone-chilling cold of Northern Alaska to the radiating heat of the Mohave Desert, this is the premier transmission cooler for any diesel application. Utilizing an ATS Diesel Deep Pan coupled with this external transmission cooling system ensures that you have a fool-proof way of beating the heat.

ATS High Performance Transmission


ATS High Performance Transmissions


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.
