Help me beef up the E40D

I want to do a better shift kit so links and suggestions are helpful!!

Also probably will do a better valve body depending what i find inside this when i pull it....

Any other suggestions to help it hold up to the tw tunes and stage 1's??? My shifts aren't as firm as i would like and it seems to slip somewhat on extreme!

Thanks for your help guys

when you buy a valve body from one of the tranny companies essentially all you are getting is a regular valve body with the trans go shift kit.

From what I've read Brian from BTS had a lot to do with the design of this version of the shift kit.
