These custom units are the finest available and offer a number of upgrades from our performance converter line. All units feature silicon spot brazed fins. A forged aluminum stator is also used because of its ability to multiply torque better than a steel stator. Other features include a 4130 Chrome-Moly Turbine Hub, a redesigned Internal Sprag, with New Springs and Rollers, Torrington Bearings, a Process-90 Hardened Hub and Dual Anti-Ballooning plates. Each unit is hand crafted from these parts to build a specialty unit for your application only. Using a variety of fin angles and stators, as well as different types of turbine clearances and sprags, Hughes puts together a winning combination for your vehicle every time.

In order for Hughes to build your new converter, many vehicle specs are needed. These include: engine size, carburetor size, vehicle weight, cam specs, rear end ratio. trans. type, motor plate thickness, and in some cases, your desired stall ratio. Please refer to the tech info on Page 29 when ordering a Hughes PRO Series converter.

We at Hughes are so confident that you will be greatly pleased with our converter, that we offer a One Year Warranty on all units. Another added bonus is that after the warranty has expired, Hughes will freshen your converter for a small labor charge plus parts. You can not beat this deal!

By using the finest parts available and a wide variety of combinations, Hughes can build a converter for your special application. These units are tested and proven by our own race team, “Hughes Motorsports”. If you are ready for consistency, durability and that race winning combination, give us a call today at 1-800-274-7223.

 

PRO-III Series

This series is available in 8″, 9″, and 10″ configurations and is among the best known full competition unit. Literally thousands of these units have been produced, and when repeatability is important, this is the converter most people insist on. The prime characteristic of PRO III SERIES torque converters is the hard launch, but soft transition down track, allowing more consistency and ability to repeat. In many cases, variance of 60′ times will only be a few thousandths from the first to the last round.

PRO-IV Series

PRO IV SERIES are more aggressive by design. The units are normally good for slightly higher m.p.h. Units are designed with more furnace brazing which produces less efficiency loss and less slippage, therefore producing higher miles per hour. This unit will still produce excellent repeatability, a must for bracket-type race situations. Units are available in 8″, 9″, and 10″ configurations.

All Pro Series are Special Order units Only. Please refer to the Tech Info when ordering a Hughes competition torque converter.

PRO-V Series

This full race converter is available from an entirely new casing and built differently than our other full race torque converters. The trend towards bigger and more powerful engines is what spawned this particular bad boy series of converters. The unit is our most aggressive race converter delivering a hard hit off the line and soft transition down track with no loss in top end efficiency and m.p.h. It runs faster than any other race series we’ve ever produced, yet gives consistency at 60′ you won’t believe, and still lets you kill the tree. If more m.p.h. is what you’re looking for, order our 95 Series today.

  • Hard Hit Soft Transition
  • More Aggressive Stator Less Aggressive Fin Angle
  • No Loss of Top End Efficiency & MPH
  • Great Reaction Time
  • 60′ More Consistent
