Personally I would spend the 300$ extra. It would stink to have to pull the trans out to replace the 2 disk one.

Depends on who is making the TC's. I'd get a 6.0 TC thats made to fit the 7.3

how much are you looking to spend? I can get ATS and Suncoast TC's and they are top notch... I would recommend the ATS, because of customer service, warranty and reliability, but they arent cheap
