Project Carbon™ 545RFE Billet Accumulator Girdle & OD Shift Spring
545RFE Billet Accumulator Backing Plate (Girdle)
The 545RFE Valve Body Accumulator Backing Plate is one of the biggest failure points in the entire transmission. The Project Carbon™ Billet Accumulator Girdle is designed to act not as a simple "plate", but as a girdle design that proves indestructible in safe applicaction. The plate's design magic is simple, it is 3/16" of stainless steel. It is simply a higher tensility and yield than the material the pistons themselves are made from, making it physically impossible for to be damaged by the presence of a piston.
It's anti-flexion engineering also prevents the yaw and deflection that causes the OEM hardware to back out, negating failed accumulator plates as a concern for life at less than the cost of a shift kit! It is advised that one includes the use of an ultra-high strength threadlocking agent on the bolts when using this product.
