I've been wanting to get a chip for a while now, but I know myself, and I need to get all the supporting mods prior to the chip or i'll blow stuff up. I'm gettin ready to switch all the fluids over to amsoil synthetics, and while doing the tranny fluid/filter I figured I'd change the VB's while in there. Any ill effects of having say a BTS or john wood Valve body without all the power? I'll probably be 4-5 months before I'm allowed to get chip/gauges, so safety is my concern. (allowed is what happens when you have a baby) Also, when draining the tranny fluid, how do I drain the TC? And should I? Once I drain it, how to refill?
The part that sucks is that I just had all the fluids changed when I bought it (almost 20k ago), but if synthetics will help me gain some MPG, I'm all for it. Plus it will add to longevity of my rig.
And while we're at it, could someone send me links for john wood and BTS VB's, there was another I've seen mentioned, but I can't remember. Thanks guys.
