What do with a 99 Torque Converter

Ok, I have a 99 f250 (Jan 1999 build date) with a very noisy torque converter. I know about the problems with the 99 TC and TSB on the 1999 torque converters.

Here is my dilemma, the transmission shifts nicely and the fluid looks good, but I can’t take the noise, it is driving me nuts (I love the diesel noise, but hate the rocks in can sound at idle)

So these are my options as I see it:

1. Replace the TC with a stock ford TC and pump seal (I’ve been told that the new Ford TC are actually the 6.0 converters) 1C3Z-7902-CARM, is this true?
2. Wait until the transmission dies and do a JW or BTS trans, I don’t put many miles on the truck
3. Replace it with a billet converter; it just seems like a waist, if I’m still going to be replacing the trans in 2 years.

What other things should I do, while I have the transmission out? Pump seal

I don’t tow very often and don’t plan on making any crazy horsepower in the near future. I am planning to do a PHP chip

I would put a built TC in it now that will compliment a BTS or what ever you get transmission when take the plunge.

I’m certainly no expert on transmission or torque converters, but wouldn’t I need a new torque converter when I put a new transmission in (or at the very least have it sent out to be inspected)? What are the chances of not destroying the TC when the transmission pukes?

It is a risk. I am no expert either. I replaced both when I did mine but my TC is what took out my transmission. Its just ideas but they are not really based on experiance. I would do it if the trans is working fine and the collant is good. If you feel the trans does not have much time left then I would not do.

Hope that helps a little.
