Will a c5 lockup converter work in a c6?

I notice that when looking at torque converters online for the c6 it usually show c4-c6 converter, and c4,c5,c6 converter...so I imagine they are all interchangeable...but does the c5 lock up torque converter work in a c6? I thought I heard somewhere they were centrifugal. (Im not sure) Even if I could do it my engine would probably smoke it pretty quick...but I just thought Id ask. It would be interesting, a lock up c6.

No its not possible, even if you had a C5 you wouldn't want the lock up to work because it was such a poor design. I used to disable the lock up in all C5's I built because there was so many problems with them they wouldn't stay gone long.

I heard there were problems with them...were they any good even in a stock application? Or were they always just overall bad?
