Default Torque Converter Recommendations

I have been having issues with my torque converter and after some research I found that it's been an issue with this gen truck. I was going to just use the warranty and have it replaced but now I am leaning towards an aftermarket unit. I have seen good things from TCI, Circle D and Edge but was wondering if anyone can give me some input on their experience with any of these TC's.

Thanks in advance..

I have the Circle D 2800 HPII. So far so good. Whichever you choose, call or email them and tell them your current combo, any planned future mods and what your intended use is for the vehicle. Based on that input they will recommend one for you.

Talk to Matt at Moe's Performance. He'll give you good advise and will treat you right. He has an excellent reputation for customer service.

I too have the Circle D 2800 stall converter and have been quite happy with it. Both Edge and Circle D have great customer service, I can't say the same for ATI as I haven't dealt with them. I would talk to either company about your wants/needs and they can tell you which of their series converters and stall will do best for your end goals. A 3200 stall isn't a good thing if you want drivability and towing with a stock engine, but it's a popular stall for starting from a dig right in the powerband.
