What torque converter is best??

Hello, I just found out my torque converter is bad and I am in the search for a new one. The main purpose of my truck is to tow, so I need something extremely reliable. I would like to buy a performance one rather than getting an oem revised one. I have never bought one before and would like opinions from the more experienced members.

Which is the best route to go? Brand? Price? Where to order it from?

99' 350 dually, 2 wheel drive, auto trans
just rolled over 117k

Thanks in advance and sorry if I posted this one the wrong section.

I like the ATS one but I'll probably get dumped on for saying that. LOL

Lot of guys don't like ATS. The usual stuff is said, poor quality, poor service, but DAMN I love purple. LOL

In my experience, the cost of converters isn't because you're paying for parts. Instead, they're expensive because you're paying for knowledge, and with the proper knowledge, it can completely transform the way your ride performs. the Neal Chance converter in my Mustang was $1800, but it does work!
