It directs fluid flow to make different clutches apply and disengage for the different gears.

No, the shift kit is something that is done to the valve body.

Then would a shift kit be considered an upgraded valve body?

I'm not an expert by any means, but a shift kit isn't an upgraded valve body. I think the upgraded valve body has actual machine work done to it.

So then what is the benefit or upgrading the valve body? Would upgrading the valve body affect the shift kit?
