The converter's impellor, stator, turbine, piston, and cover are assembled and the stack height is checked to specifications. The internals use brazed fins and stronger bearings for strength and better performance. The turbine and impeller pieces are reinforced and strengthened to support the pressure of the transmission oil as they spin at high speeds. The stator redirects oil between these two pieces and is upgraded with a bearing that provides smoother rotation.
