Torque converters

Yeah, are the torque convertors on the V6s considered "efficient"? Because if they are not, this might increase or acceleration or something: Pro-Torque Torque Convertors So would it help the auto AV6?

TC upgrade is well worth it

I upgraded the TC in my GTP as soon as it was available. That alone made a .5 sec change in my 1320ft runs. very well worth it once it comes out.

From my understanding, Accords don't have a common automatic like other cars. I believe in the 6th gen FAQ Stevtec gave a nice detailed write up on the exact specs of it. Anyways you should call them to see about doing a set up for 7th gens.

High performance torque convertors are not efficiant. The higher the stall speed, the more slippage inside the convertor hence the less effciancy. If you want speed, you don't want gas milage
