torque converter selection help

I'm looking at torque converters to replace my stock one. Mods will be a 66mm VGT, 190cc Warren Diesels, SCT and all the usually supporting mods. If I do tow on average will be 5000-6000k but up to 10-12k on occasion.

Just looking at whats available Suncoast, Precision Industries, Banks Billet

The suncoast TC I can't find any data on it from the sites that sell it. none of them specify if it has a billet back plate or if the stator is machined from a solid piece.

Precision sounds good and has lower stall..which I'd like I hate loose torque converters.

Banks I haven't seen any posts on it but says it handles 1600lbs torque and is billet.

Thanks for any info
