Had a shift kit in an AOD and hated it! Mainly cause down shifts were stiff too. I have an EAOD now and a chip to control shift points and firmness

That would be nice, but you should rebuild the trans first to ensure it will hold up to the higher pressures and harder shifts.

With all of the different options for valve bodies and shift kits it is difficult to say what the exact pros and cons are.
The main plus for a valve body is that it is professionally built. The shift kit you, a shop or someone else will have to install and if you don't know what you are doing it is easy to ruin a transmission by improper installation. I have personally seen a shop screw up 3 transmissions, just because they were not following proper torquing procedures during assembly.

Installation of a valve body or shift kit I owuld consider to be of medium to hard difficulty and it will require some specialized tools and following the directions VERY carefully and to the letter.
