Here, Garcia compares the new stock-spec Omix-Ada torque converter on the left to our old burnt unit on the right. Even though Omix-Ada makes good parts, it is always a good practice to make sure there are no differences between the original and replacement part. For the converter, check for things like height, overall diameter, the flexplate-side bolt pattern and bolt size, and the OD of the sealing surface where the converter slides into the transmission. There is nothing worse than getting the transmission back in and discovering something doesn’t line up or fit.
