Transgo shift kits & valve bodies from BTS or JW seem to be popular upgrades. Sorry don't have prices...

transgo shift kits are around 75 and A BTS valve body is around 250

A transgo shift kit is good but the valve body is better, both will help extend tranny life

You can also get a triple disc billet torque converter. check out racerxautomotive.com. they have good converters for a really good price. i think they have a pretty darn good converter for like 600.

I think there is also pump mods that you can do for not to much.

ok so im looking at the transgo shift kit. I watched the video and it seems very simple. It didnt show any drilling though but it says in the tool list you need a drill and ive also heard you need to drill a hole. Where exactly do i have to drill the hole just trying to figure it out. Also whats the exact kit called from transgo? Is the transgo "tugger" shift kit the one that I want? thanks guys for all the info

I have the TransGo HD-2. Tugger wasn't available 8 years ago when I did mine. I did have to drill the separator plate but the instructions in the kit are very straightforward. Just go slow and keep it clean! No rags or anything that can leave lint/dirt behind!
