Hey I am interested in getting the 6.0 convertor as well. I was wondering if your TC was beginning to slip before you purchased the 6.0, and also how many miles you have on your tranny. I have a 2000 with 144K on my tranny and have been looking for a new TC, but I just don't have the money for the high-end billet ones. Let me know on the details buddy, THANKS!

TXPSD99, yes my TC is slipping a pretty good bit. If you have a 2000 with 144k miles on the original TC, consider yourself lucky. Well, I take that back. Your only lucky if your truck is not stock. We both have the single disk TC, which has since been updated to a triple disk TC. When I first purchased my DP-Tuner, my tires would bark when I was hammering down on the go petal. Now when my TC locks up, it's a slow drop in RMP's, hense slippage.
I don't abuse my truck and don't really use the added power from the chip unless it's needed or a race breaks out at a stop light. Even those rare times will be enough to toast your stock TC lock up clutch. Going with a high dollar TC just wasn't feasible at this point and besides, the 6.0 TC is pretty darn hard to beat for the price. If or when I decide to spend some big bucks, I’ll be going with a BTS. Can’t see spending big bucks on an aftermarket converter with no beefed up internals. I'll let you know what I think once it's installed.
