BD torqueloc or Suncoast TC controler

Does anyone have any of these torque converter lockup controlers? I am looking at both of these for my upgraded tranny and don't know which one to go with I do know i want to be able to lockup in second gear. I don't want to rig up a switch because i want adjustability. I read something on the BD site where if you get use there that you can only use it with light throttle no matter what converter you have. I thought all these things were suppose to work hand in hand. If you upgrade a tranny to handle almost 450HP on a dodge cummins and use a TC controler you shouldn't have to worry about it chutering or slipping. Heck The allison tranny's lockup in second gear no matter if you are giving light throttl or mash the pedal. I don't get it. Any one got any insite on which one to choose?

what about with heavy throttle? Have you had any problems with your converter slipping with moderate to heavy throttle? BD claims you should only use earlier lockups with light throttle.

Because I don't want to have keep doing that all the time. I want to be able to program the lockup and unlock speed for different things. Like towing, or daily driving, or having fun up the track. I know you can do that with the switch, i just want to set it and leave it for whaever i am doing and let the controler do the work for me. I just wanted to know the difference between the BD and suncoast controlers. I went with the suncoast because i didn't like what BD was saying on there website about how to use it. I just wanted to know if any one has one or has used one of them. how they liked them and the programing of them.
