Are you gonna replace the TC too while you got it out?? Or are you lookin at doin a sonnax type kit?? I vote full shift kit with new converter. The Transgo Tugger kit is plain ole awesome in these trannys.

No Im not replacing the torque convertor. I bought a used dp chip that was programmes for a bts tranny so basically I gotta get the line pressure increased and am wondering if its worth the $ for a valve body or maybe the sonnax kit for $45?

Neither one does ANYTHING to improve the output of the front pump. I went the sonnax route, and for a while, it "covered up" what I was trying to fix.
