The converter by itself will make little if any difference. It needs to be set up properly for the combo it's on. The advantage of the billet converter COAN sells is lower rotating mass. This allows for quicker acceleration of the engine, which accounts for the drop in ET. Have the setup wrong though, and it won't make any difference at all.

Personally I wish all torque converters were still bolt together, so easy to clean and replace wear parts I really miss the good old days of quality made parts.
