transmission upgrades?

Hello guys got a question for ya. I have a 2000 crewcab 7.3. I am doing a few upgrades to it. bigger injectors, bellowed up pipes, chip. I will be adding about 150hp to the truck. what upgrades can i do to the tranny with out rebuilding it to help it hold up ? I know about a billet in-put shaft. I have heard about the 6.0 converter. but what else could be done? also if the 6.0 converter is true what do i need to make it work?

thanks guys

i have a set of stage two's i am puttin in it. they are the singel shot injectors. i had a custom ship burnt so they would work in my truck. i am askin about the trans cause i was told to put a billet input shaft in it and a 6.0 converter. but i was not sure that the converter would work.

well http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/mem...ance-inc-.html sells 6.0 tc's but the bts valve body and cooler is what a lot of people are runnin. i don't think you'll be makin enough power to need a billet input shaft

if you add stage 2's (160/100's) with a stock turbo you're still only gonna make 400ish horse before the turbo poops out. lots of people are makin a lot more power than you on stock with bts valve body
