Top Ten signs of a bad torque converter:

#10 - It's found between an engine and transmisison which have the words "Daimler" cast in them somewhere;

#9 - Doesn't claim "Additional Oil" on Form 1299 with its tax return;

#8 - Your torque converter has been "balooned" more than Dick Cheney's arteries;

#7 - When you're not looking, it crawls off the flexplate and takes twenty minute paid "breaks" on the input shaft;

#6 - You wake up in the morning and find your torque converter sleeping with your neighbor's wife;

#5 - The lockup clutch has more "slop" than Madonna;

#4 - Your torque converter has been off on an Extacy binge for six days straight;

#3 - The hookers in Times Square tell you "We would, but we don't want to get caught with someone with a torque converter like yours.";

#2 - Sneaks out at night and holds up convenience stores for all the ATF they have on hand;

The Number 1 reason your torque converter is bad - Your torque converter has appeared twice on "America's Most Wanted".

Sorry, couldn't resist!

I think your ECU and TCU rpm's doesn't match.

Were you driving PSM OFF and Manual mode while this happened?

I think you have two options;

1- Change your ECU rev limit back to normal.

2- Upgrade your TCU to match the ECU rev limit.

We told you this in your other thread! I'd honestly just have softronic lower your rev limiter back to stock...The extra 300rpm or so isn't going to make you the fastest car around...On most dyno's, the power will be dropping off by then anyways!
