trans done have a small issue!
 
hey guys finally got my 200r4 back from getting rebuilt and added a 2000 stall and trans go shift kit! Stock rear! My concern is when the convertor lock up car loses power a little so i assumed by the gear ratio being so small and wheels so big and heavy(22inch) it doesnt have enough to push the car at full potential at lockup so i disabled lockup runs alot better but just wanted to kno is it safe til i get a nice set of gears? Or is it safe to just leave the lockup off?

better off running it in 3rd gear instead and letting lockup work like its supposed to. with lockup engaged, it allows lube to get to the planets so they dont get burned up.

tried 3rd also wasnt any better than 4th gear still locked up and loss power i think my car has 2.56 gears so ima do 3.73 and hook it back up after a few weeks when its done guess it'll hold up til then

Geezz, with 2.56 gears you don't even need 4th. The 2004R's 4th/.67 makes the 2.56 a 1.71 gear. :D You'll definetly need 3.73 & up.

if its doing the same thing in 3rd as it is in 4th gear when the tcc comes in then you have another problem. either an engine misfire or performance issue, or youve got a electrical problem with the tcc wiring, or you have an internal leak in the lockup circuit that is causing a bind when the tcc engages.
with 2.56 rear gears, in 3rd gear with tcc engaged, the engine ought to be running quite happy.

You said you have 22" Rims. What diameter are your tires?
As 'Tnsmith' said maybe electrical problem with the TCC Solenoid etc..

As tnsmith10 stated earlier, you have the potential to cause damage by disabling the lockup.
