dont get a valve body shift kit its a waste of money imo, there are shift kits out there that can actually do some good but not the ones that just **** with your valve body. some shift kits make you change some of your planetary gears and pump gears but there isnt one out for the 4r70w
just get a tranny cooler from summit racing.com or jegs.com

A valvebody shift kit can do wonders for the tranny.

If you have the time to do some reading here is the definitive info on them.

wtf are you talking about?? My b&m valvebody improved how my trans worked 100x over stock. Stock slow sloppy shifts are pathetic...

get a good shiftkit (ie jerrymod, b&m) and you'll be MUCH happier.

those shift kits just **** up your acumalators, there are better tgings to do to a tranny than a valve body shift kit. all they do is make the shift firmer and shorter thus ****ing up your acumalators.

When my chip was burnt they changed the rev limiter and added line pressure to make a firmer harder shift I have a 2600 stall too. my trans is just fine and i run high 13s in my v-6. My sugestion is if you plan on haveing a chip done let the computer change your shift points, line pressure and move the rev limiter up to 6000 -6200 rpm.
my trans is stock except for the stall. a stall will be good for 3-4 tenths and you can get one for about 400-450 at EDGE RACING and a chip can be burnt or flashed for about 200-300 bucks.

exactly make a chip handle all your changes, not some cheap valve body shift kit
