Default Predator 212 w/ Comet 30 Torque Specs?

How much torque is produced from a Predator 212 w/ a Comet 30 torque converter?

A crap ton of torque.

~24lbs at 3:1(7")
~18.5lbs at 2.3:1(6")
~8lbs at full open.

Also, depends if you have a 6" or 7" driven.

Wrong, since the peak torque of the engine is not created at either engagement speed or at full speed.

That's why we use torque converters in the first place.

Plus you have to consider the inherent ~20% efficiency loss.

In reality, you'd need to do a Dyno pull with a completely stock setup to really pin down a full set of accurate numbers through the RPM range.

Well these are MAX torque ratings. If you were setting the motor to 2500RPM and for example, climbing a steep hill, it is very possible to get 24 out of the driven.

But yes, most of time time the numbers won't reach what I out out. Does it matter, no. Because Im too busy having fun with my 30T/C instead of worrying about numbers.
