Larger Torque Converter For 700R4

Was wondering if a larger [than stock] converter can be used on/in a 700R4 ('86 Silverado) tranny. Also heard some say a non-lockup converter would be better for the lower
gears... 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Would this be a good/better way to go? Thanks, GC

there aren't any non lockup convertors for a 700R-4, it was designed for use with a lockup TC. if you run it w/ the plug on the transmission removed ( negating the lockup) the trans will quickly overheat and puke fluid out of the vent. It's not like a TH350, which started out non lockup and they adapted it to a lockup TC w/o making the convertor any bigger, which made it weaker.

There are a lot of TC’s available for the 700R4. Most of them are higher stall for performance applications.
