If you are planning on increasing the power in your diesel, a stronger torque converter will help save your transmission. The converter transmits the power from the engine into the transmission, but in order to effectively get the power to the ground the converter will need to lock up. When additional power is applied to the stock converter, the discs inside become damaged and the converter housing can warp, resulting in an increased amount of slippage that will eventually lead to additional damage to the transmissions internals.
