The B&M Holeshot 2000 Torque Converter, Part #40472 fits Ford 1980 to 1992 AOD automatic transmission with 11.4 inch bolt circle and 1.375 inch crank pilot.
The Holeshot 2000 torque converter will provide several advantages and benefits in vehicles with modified engines. Many modifications tend to reduce low end power and torque. The Holeshot 2000 torque converter allows the engine to launch the car at higher rpm where more torque is available.
The Holeshot 2000 is a very good choice for the typical street machine that is looking for better launch capability and more strength. Street rods with modified engines will also benefit from a Holeshot converter.

B&M HoleShot torque converters are designed to improve acceleration and increase drivetrain strength in most street machines. A nice benefit of a Holeshot high stall torque converter is when a higher duration camshaft is used, you can expect improved engine idle while stopped in gear. These high quality balanced torque converters come standard with full furnace brazed impeller and turbine, heavy-duty needle type thrust bearings, and new turbine hubs.

Stall Speed: Very mild street cars use a 2000 RPM stall speed unit. Most street-driven performance cars with 350 foot pounds of torque or more need a 2400 RPM unit. Cars with more radical small blocks (500 foot pounds of torque at 4500 RPM or higher) require a 3000 RPM converter. The more torque a motor puts out, the higher the resulting stall speed. Therefore most street performance big blocks would still use a 2400 RPM converter because they generally achieve 2600-2800 RPM. An engine smaller than 350ci might not achieve such stall speeds, which are based on an engine producing 230 foot pounds of torque at 2500 RPM.
