Torque converter decision

Iím Joel from Puerto Rico and I have a 1997 ford F250 Heavy Duty 4X4 truck, I m having problems with my transmission, I thinks is the E40D. I was wondering if anyone can help me to decide for a good torque converter and oem or billet i dont want to spend a lot of $$$ but I need one for my truck that works better than stock . Please tell me about a good one for daily driver truck that i use for towing just in weekends.

How much better is just a billet cover over a regular cover? So you know it doesnt mean it has stronger clutches thats the inside. I have seen triples clutch torque converters with and without billet covers. I was told that the billet cover helps eliminate ballooning.

A Stallion Coverter is good, it's what BTS uses, also Outlaw Performance Diesel sells some TC that run about 1,000 and they say you can't break them.

I'm on my second ats converter in one year and now its starting to chatter and vibrate so I wouldn't recommend getting one from ats. Just a heads up to save you some trouble
