Carbonite G3 is a (non-asbestos) organic based friction material with specially designed impregnated carbon graphitic particles. The addition of these carbon graphitic particles adds unmatched lubricity and exceptionally high thermal stability to this new friction material. This new state of the art material allows for a dramatic improvement over stock friction material.

The new Ford 6R140 Torqshift transmission is the most robust transmission Ford has yet to build. This unit was designed and manufactured exclusively by Ford Motor Company. First and foremost, Ford opted to incorporate a robust one-piece bell housing design for the all new 6R140 Torqshift transmission. This new one piece design is not only tough but adds a tremendous amount of rigidity to the case making torsional flex an afterthought. The transmission features a very deep first gear (great for towing and moving mountains) with double overdrive (excellent for fuel economy). This unit has a total of six forward gears with the ratios as follows: 1st gear 3.974:1, 2nd gear 2.318:1, 3rd gear 1.516:1, 4th gear 1.149:1, 5th gear 0.858:1, 6th gear 0.674:1.
For maximum efficiency, the patented Lepelletier geartrain reduces complexities that exist in connecting an automatic transmission's gear sets and clutches. Simply put, the 6R140 uses a simple gearset to drive a Ravigneaux gearset. So the transmission uses just five clutch sets to achieve six forward gears. The 6R140 is further strengthened by the utilization of a powder-metal carrier within the compound Ravigneaux planetary gearset (a double planetary gearset). The carrier is made up of four pressed components, which are sinter-brazed together to form a rigid, dense structure.
The new torque converter in the 6R140 features an exclusive long travel, ultra high capacity turbine damper designed to soften the extreme force produced by the new 6.7 L PowerStroke. Here at SunCoast we have already improved upon this converter, launching our own line of Torque converters including a variety of stall speeds.
