Tranny questions

I have an 02 f250 7.3 and am curious as to what I can do to build my trans to hold up to what i would like to do to the truck. The truck is pretty much all stock except for having an edge evolution programmer and a straight pipe. I have purchased a bullydog shift kit and am going to install this weekend and also am about to lift the truck 6" and run 35" tires. I want to run some type of intake not sure one yet but like the afe pro gaurd stage 2 and want to run a bigger exhaust but not sure on which size to go with. My main concern though is I know im going to need to upgrade the tranny what would be the best way to go with upgrading the trans? Have heard the torque converter from the torqueshift trans will work and is better than the 4r100 one.

get rid of the edge and the bully dog and get a custom tuned chip.
also if you want basic upgrades get a torque converter and a valve body, if you wanna go all out BTS or john woods trannys..

Thanks guys for the advise and im not really looking for something to go all out with my truck I just got the edge to get some more power and I got what I wanted with that and I just kinda want to throw some extra goodies on to help with mileage and stuff this truck is more my daily drive than a tow rig. I just have an 80s model f150 that I have lifted and a bunch of stuff done to it and a carhauler that I pull out of town to the huntsville area and stuff every couple of months. Probably the heaviest thing I have pulled with it was our small oliver tractor and my buddies 4 door long bed 05 cummins that lifted thats about the heaviest ill ever get maybe a load of cattle in a 24' gooseneck.

A 6.0 TC is the best you can get till you get a BTS..I'd have BTS get you a VB and then get yourself a 6.0 TC
