We have assembled a Valve body kit that gives you proven parts and
information on how to properly upgrade the performance of your overdrive transmission.
The installation of this kit requires previous experience in working with Torqueflite valve
bodies and strict attention to detail to obtain satisfactory results and benefits. We provide detailed instructions and
recommendations on what to look for and how to carry out the task successfully.
DESIGNED FOR STREET, HEAVY DUTY AND HIGH PERFORMANCE
IT IS MORE THAN JUST A SHIFT KIT-
This comprehensive kit also corrects many
of the problems that can lead to early failure of the original transmission.
This kit addresses the problems of:
- premature band failure;
- inadequate lube oil resulting in burned planetaries;
- converter damper shopring failure and lock-up clutch burnup;
- weak 2nd and 3rd shift;
- lock-up shudder;
- converter drainback causing slow engagements.
- firmer shifts and firmer converter lock-up
This "user friendly" kit FEATURES:
- revised valves, springs, seals, filter, pan gaskets, shaft
seal and drain plug kit;
- comprehensive detailed instructions that not only tell what
to do, but also explain the effects of such modification;
- specialized tool fixtures, drills and various emery paper
to carry out the task;
- inside the container lid is a detailed breakdown view of the
valve body for use as a working reference;
- all components are packaged in re-sealable poly bags - no shrink plastic
melted to springs, valves, etc.

This kit includes an additional governor pressure control valve which will
allow operating pressure to be raised for heavy duty use without setting an error code in the computer. This increased
operating pressure provides greater holding power of the bands, clutch packs and torque converter to prevent slippage
and heat build up. Increased lubricating pressure of the planetaries is also extremely important when operating
these transmissions in heavy duty applications.
