Torque converter fail

Got a 2003 6.0 with a few performance mods done to it and a built transmission. For the second time my aftermarket torque converter has failed. The input shaft keeps spinning the splines inside the converter. Any opinions on factory ford converters being better than aftermarket “beefed up” converters? Or any recommendations on what I should put back in it?

Do you have a billet input shaft? Whose converter keeps failing?

Re: Torque converter fail

Billet input shaft yes. First one that failed if I remember right came from a truck shop in Arkansas. Can’t remember the name of it. Second one came from a local transmission shop here in SD. So neither were brand names from what you can buy off the internet but both Converters had good reviews on them.
