Suncoast Direct Solenoid?

I am getting ready to do a tranny filter and fluid change and was going to buy the solenoid from suncoast, but now I can't find it on their website or any of the vendors. Does anyone know if they've done away with them or am I having a brain fart? For the few who have installed this, what are your thoughts whether it was worth it? I'm getting ready to install a Black Maxx and thought this might be a nice addition. Thanks for any input!

So has there been a general concensus on if it was worth putting in for the price? I wouldn't mind a firmer shift for pulling trailers.

Since you have our TCM, I would not recommend getting the Sun Coast direct solenoid. It will make the 3-5 shift become a harsher shift.

What benefits would I get by adding the transgo suncoast shift kit w/ stock tranny? The website doesn't have much info.
