I am thinking about doing the same thing. My question is, does it make sense to do a valve body without also changing the torque converter to something better than the stock converter? I was under the impression that they should be replaced at the same time.

That's the consensus that everyone seems to share because the stock converter is a weak link.

I did just the valve body, but I have no extra power to the truck. I just like the firmer shifts keeping the current material in place longer.
