i would do a BTS replacement Valve Body and to get the temps down, use a large cooler such as ghe tru-cool MAXX or a 32 row superduty cooler. i have a BTS valve body and love it. also have a 32 row trans cooler but needs to be installed

About the cheapest you can go is the Bullydog spring kit and it works fairly well. The next step up would be something like the Transgo Tugger kit that works really well. Then there's the full valve body replacement like BTS, Racerx, John Woods. The trans in my truck has Sonnax valve body parts and I'm really happy with it. As already said get a bigger cooler to get the temps down. I use the tru-cool 40K cooler and it works very well.

A Transgo kit IMO is the best kit out there, I have a tugger kit installed in my truck right now and really like it. It does require you to drill your VB though.

A BTS or JW VB is the easiest way to go as you simply unbolt your stock VB and bolt the new one in.
Not sure about RacerX, never used any of thier products, so I couldnt say either way on them.
