TH180 GT owner here. Yes there are TH180 lock-up torque converters - some Chevettes and Suzuki Models used them BUT it is not as simple as just bunging in a lock-up converter as there are the hydraulic control passages to be considered. Internally the Lock-up TH180 is considerably different to the nonlock-up type. Also wee four cylinder motors get a bit stressed with lock-up converters as a bit of slip cushions them from severe rev changes when up-down hill transitions take place.tekenaar said:On another note to all the TH-180 drivers here, does anyone know of any GM lock-up torque converter from a later model that would fit the TH-180?? RBob?
THe TH180 is already one of the most efficient GM auto transmissions as far a losses are concerned - it was used extensively in Australian Holdens as the "Tri-matic" so I have a wee bit of experience with this trans.
