tourque converter? which to go with??

so im on a budget as is. my 4r100 is in the process of being rebuilt now. the truck has a dp tuner intake exhaust and upgraded wastegate. as is the converter locks up the second it its 2nd gear. the place building it called and gave me the option of a 2 disk bilet converter ( which is what ive had in it and held up fine, blew out firt primary clutch) or do i spend the extra 300 for the tripple disk bilet converter. thanks for any inputs

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

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned
