Will GDE offer a Euro wrangler TC upgrade to go with the Turbo upgrade? Perhaps even an ECU, turbo, and Euro TC combined tune package?

The torque converter must be purchased through Mopar and it is still not available for purchase in the US. If all the components become available, we could do complete installs for customers. We certainly recommend upgrading the TC with the turbo kit. This would allow you to have 30-35% more torque in lock-up leading to improved fuel economy while towing, less shifting on hills, improved passing, etc.

As I live in England (London to be exact), could you let me have the Mopar part numbers for the JK Euro TC components?

The reason I ask, is that in my experience of our Jeep dealers - nice guys though they are, they are rarely offroaders. A request for a JK TC to be installed into my KJ is likely to be opposed, and probably refused on the ground that it is not a factory part for the vehicle, and they are unwilling to take the risk in the event of a problem - not an unreasonable position given the various safety codes.

If I can order the part/s separately, I can get them installed by an independent Jeep mechanic.

For those living in Europe, you should be able to purchase the JK torque converter for use on the KJ. Jeep may not allow the warranty over there, at least until the part is officially released for service, not sure about it. Ask a dealer directly or ask for a unit as a spare so they don't question what you will be putting it in. The torque converter kit part number is 68037142AA and includes four bolts to mount the converter to the flexplate.
