6L80E High Capacity 3-5-R Apply Ring Sonnax Number 104548-01.
Sonnax high capacity 3-5-R apply ring 104548-01 is shorter than the OE apply ring. When the Sonnax apply ring is installed and the OE waved plate is eliminated, this allows for one additional OE thickness friction and steel plate to be installed increasing the 3-5-R clutch capacity by 25%. The extra clutch and steel also help dissipate heat resulting in a significantly more durable 3-5-R clutch pack that can handle modified engines with increased power output.
- 25% more clutch capacity
- Shorter apply ring eliminates OE waved plate to allow one additional friction
1. Install Sonnax high capacity 3-5-R apply ring above the 1-2-3-4 clutch.
2. Discard OE 3-5-R waved plate.
3. Assemble 3-5-R clutch pack with one additional OE thickness steel plate and friction plate.
4. Check clutch clearance. Target is .008–.010″ per friction or .040–.050″ total.
Clearance is adjusted with selective retaining rings, see chart (Figure 1).
