    Does anyone have experience wich BD-Power's replacement torque convertors for Allison AT542? I'm interested in this item for two reasons.
    1. The AT542 does not have a lock up, therefore, I have been told, I would be wasting my money to intall a exhaust brake with this transmision. BD claims exhaust brakes work well with their TC.

    2. My MH now has Cummins 5.9 190HP, putting out about 440 FP torque. This is near the max for the AT542. BD also offers upgrades to the 5.9 to take it over 600FP when coupled with their TC. I'm interested if anyone has done this and how much time they had to send picking up broken parts along the highway.

    Thanks for your input,
