You can run the Xrace all day every day no prob. I've run it daily in mine for the last year.

How do you upgrade the VB on the 5R110?

there is no valve body in the 5R110 tranny. Its controlled through electronic selenoids. No need to upgrade anything tranny-wise to run the Xrace. It will handle the 400-425rwhp that file will produce. The key is in the tranny tuning, and Eric has that down.
