beefing up my tranny

So I just got my pickup back. I had to settle for fora factory reman. But wow what a night and day difference from my old one. Wish I'd of replaced it a long time ago with what I really wanted instead of what I got. But anyways. What can I do to protect this one. I already know I'm gonna throw in a VB from BTS or JW. I got ago 6.0 cooler ordered already. What about an after market torque converter? Ideas on what brands ago and who to steer clear from

AFE is now making TC's. I'm a dealer for them. Lifetime warranty guaranteed for life.

I have a PI along with my BTS trans. :thumbup:

6 is diesel. 4 is gasser. Stall speed is what rpm's basically start to put power through the trans.

So I pull a travel trailer about 3 times a year to each job and daily drive my truck. What kinda stall speed would I want. A lower stall speed say 1200 rpms?

There's definitely more science to it than that though. Google it and there lots of good info from TC builders.
