Okay, I think I may go with the B&M hole shot 10in 3600. Is there anything I need to know about installing a high performance converter other than I need a trans cooler?

Always install an new seal and make sure the front pump bushing is in good shape at that time. Or just replace it too.

Pour a half a quart or so of fluid in the converter before install to avoid dry start-up.

No, but it is a nice thing to have. Often you can spot problems before they do damage if you monitor temp, if it starts running hotter than normal something is likely starting to slip in the trans or something is starting to fail in the converter.
