Which torque converter?

I am stock on the engine besides air intake, 4" exhaust turbo back, manifold tubing, and head studs. I am going to get SCT Custom tunes soon, but thought I should get a torque converter first to insure tranny safety. Which torque converter should I go with?

F250 King ranch- 4" magnaflow turbo back strait- BANKS cold air intake-BANKS RAM intake manifold- 8" PRO COMP stage XX (dual coil over) Lift--37" BFG AT-APR Studs & Delete--replaced high pressure oil-suncoast torque converter--powermax turbo(stage1)
.
Looking too add--- SCT with Insight--injectors--any other bulletproofing strategies...NEED ADVICE (Especially where to get my tunes) (I am mechanically inclined but new to doing things myself so I would love easy upgrades to do for experience)

You're stock tranny should hold fine, as long as you've kept up with maintenance .

Call up Precision industries. They are a big name in the TC dept. I would stay away from ATS. Lots of people on here have had issues with them. I dont know personally. Maybe its the transmission builder thats bad, and he cannot build good trannys.

SUncoast makes a good TC, but they are 1300.00. I dunno what precisions are....

Thanks for the replys. I'll look into suncoast and precision, but I have had my eye on ATS. Mainly for its usage in Diesel Power. But I believe they cant all be that different....correct? simply billet

Ha, good point. Though I was researching Torque converters in general, I would not know which one to get. A lockin one for sure right?, but for size/rpms and all that I am mostly lost. Any pointers?
