Torque Converter Question

I'm in need of a new torque converter and someone has one available from a 2000 7.3 that he pulled to replace with an upgraded unit when the truck was new.

I've read that ford has updated the TC to the 6.0L unit but with the 7.3 front plate and that's what they sell now when you buy them from the dealership.

Is this correct? If the new one from the dealership is an upgrade over the stock one from '00, I'll spend the extra cash and wait for it to come in. If it's not correct, I'll go ahead and pick up the used-new one from the '00 and save a few bucks and a few days delay. I also read that sometime in '01 or '02 they updated the TC to a triple disc instead of just the single, any confirmation on that?

Thanks guys!
