A good triple disc converter?

Well I smoked my trans yesterday plowing snow. Getting it rebuilt by a local shop. Looking at putting a triple disc converter in it. The trans is being upgraded at same time. Who makes a good one that will hold up to some abuse but doesn't cost more than my truck is worth? Thanks in advance

BTS uses the PI Stallion I believe. Partner that with a BTS valvebody and you should have a nice trans.

Roadrunner builds good converters. Running one in my truck right now.

They're local to me. I watched them build it. Top notch folks.

They build a fully billet converter similar to the stallion with a similar price, unless you're making 600hp the towmaster or the triple clutch will work great.

I would say either DPC (diesel performance converters) or pi stallion. These are what are usually run on high trucks and a proven to hold up.

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.
