GoGo DD Solenoid

Any first hand experience of benefits on this product? Have read on some other forums where people swear by them but trying to get some more information if this upgrade is truly worth the money, figured since I'm about to change tranny filter and fluid it would be the perfect time to do this upgrade as well if its going to provide any benefit

I think the general consensus is going to be ......good luck getting one.
a epc solenoid can easily be modified to work in its place either by you or I think a couple members on here are doing them for people.

but to answer your question, if your solenoid is weak then yes it will fix the problem. If your trans has other issues it will just be a bandaid.

I haven't had any tranny problems yet, but just tore the motor down and did a bunch of upgrades so I'm just trying to prevent anything bad from happening at this point want to prolong replacing the tranny for as long as I can

You don't want anything from Gogo Diesel. Doug Gilbert is a lying thieving POS. An EPC solenoid is easy to modify or just leave it clocked as it will.

I know this is heresay but i will post it anyways.


I talked with a lot of respectable tranny guys and they said that this is not an "upgrade"... but only a band aide if you are having problems. I was told if I don't have a 3-5 shift flare then there is no need for it. It won't help anything. And if I already have a 3-5 shift flare then 90% of the time it is because the clutches are worn and starting to go out. It will help hide/band aide the problem but it is never a permanent solution.

When I bought my new Andy Warren tranny I asked to have upgraded solenoids and he did not recommend it.



Basically it is just a band aide to hold you over until you can afford a new tranny.

I talked to Eric at ID about the DD solenoid a while back and he said its a good thing to do. He said they use them in all their trannys and would recommend one. Doug uses a EPC solenoid. I have one and it helps. Been running one for a long time now....probably nearly 4 years. There are a bunch of shops that sell a modded DD solenoid. A modded DD solenoid helps deliver more fluid to the DD clutch pack faster. Personally I don't think it acts as just a bandaid.
