I had a BTS valve body and loved it. I know a few guys with the JW and love it. Differance between the two is the BTS has a reverse delay, while the JW does not .

I'd stay clear of the BD one, especially for more cash

If it's like mine, it takes 1/2 second to switch into reverse once you pull the lever.

I have an off topic question what experience do y'all have with doing the 6.0 transcooler mod? I've heard that if you don't have enough flow it can be worse than the stock any thoughts or suggestions?
