the 'correct' term is torque converter
The most popular choices are the Yank "SC" series or the Vig (PI) triple-disc converters. I am very pleased with the function and service of my SC2800.

What makes the SC2800 better than the TT3000?

The TT series are affordable converters while the SC series are machined from a chunk of steel billet and are designed to stall behind the huge torque a SuperCharger will produce. A TT3000 would probably stall to 4000 behind my engine

The SC series also run in the $945 range

If your 4.8 is stock and running around 6 psi of boost the TT3000 should work for you. If you plan to increase power in the future I'd say get the SC series. I don't know much about the Vigilante but have heard nothing but good things about them.

A friend of mine has a '00 GMC ECSB with 6.0L with STS Kit. It is all stock with the exception of camshaft and different pistons. He is running a TT2600 and it works well for him although he does wish he went with the 3000 instead.

I would get the same one trever1t has if I were to do it all over again.
