Which torque converter?

Hey guys I'm building up my transmission for no more than 400 hp. But the truck once a week minimum pulls about 18k. So what I'm asking is would a racer-x eagle x-6TC triple disk be sufficient for my needs? And does any know anything about a dayco torque converter? Tranny guy is trying to get me to look into buying one.
Much appreciated

RacerX is a great choice. Or a 6.0 tc.

Dont forget a good valve body though!

Is there a difference in a valve body with a trans go kit on it and say a vb from bts?

The trans go is beautiful. Keep it. Dont worry about a VB. They are essentially the same thing.

Alright. How about z-pack clutches? Sorry for all the questions you just seem very knowledgable on this topic

Sorry, I know nothing about 'z pack clutches'. Never heard of it. The racerx is a bit expensive, but it's a great piece of hardware. Dont forget to get your custom tunes retuned for the VB and TC!!!
