    what happnes if a torque converter is powered via the turbine rather than the pump (such as after going quickly then taking your foot off the accelerator)?

    i was under the impression it would work the other way round, just as when you take your foot off the accelerator after cruising, it will turn the engine over with the energy from the road.

    not so, go look at the website.
    ever notice your engine reving up when you take your foot off the gas going down hill.
