Best torque converter?

Whats the best converter out there? Triple disk of course. Theres several companies that make em, what's the best bang for your buck? Reliability/performance? Warranty and service? I know goerend has a lifetime warranty, but its a spendy little bugger. I saw a revmax on ebay for $1k, are they any good? All the other companies are in the middle somewhere.. Whats the best choice?

Pm sent. I thought the goerends was way expensiive but i guess its 1400 bucks. Lifetime warranty, seems like a no brainer.

Do you have any transmission modifications or just the triple disk torque converter? Any engine mods also? I am wondering if changing out my torque converter before some transmission mods will just burn up my trany faster?

I'm not 100% but i think its 1 year. What ever it is i can tell you it will not matter. Ive stalled mine so much for long periods of time until it burnt the paint off the thing and it still worked like new. I'm sure the other guys have good products as well but Suncoast is all i know and will get my vote every time. Ive probably had over 20 trannys and converters in my truck in the last 2 years while testing and have had only one issue. On top of that there are quite a few trucks in the 1000+ hp range that have enough 1/4 mile passes on the track to make your head spin with out a hitch.

A stock tranny will see a little more stress as the aftermarket converter will act on what its commanded to to without slipping. But on the other hand the stock TCM is still in control and ultimately will not let things get to much out of hand.

Good luck
