The kit I used was from Diesel Conversion Specialists.

If you're on a budget, I would keep the Dodge trans, preferably a manual. You're going to pay more than 2k to keep the 5r110 trans.

If I did it again, I would still go with tuning the Ford PCM. That way I still get the tow/haul function.

The things I would change
1. Go with a lower stall torque converter
2. Keep the 6.0...
