Opinions on performance

Looking to upgrade, what would you recommend:

Switchable chip:
Torque Converter:
Valve body:
Solenoid Pack:
Tranny cooler (either a pan or cooler):
Intake manifold:

I mainly tow a boat or 13,000lb RV so I'm looking for endurance as well as performance.

All opinions are welcome.

Thanks!

Well if I was you I wouldnt just put a TC and a valve body in becuase thats like using a bandaid. It will break over time. Now the chip i've used a few and any custom tunes you will probably be happy with. I ran the superchip for years and it was a nice chip but does not compare to custom chip like TW, BTS, PHP or all those.

Go for a Power Hungry Performance chip. Bill is the best out there! Don't worry about intake manifolds. No gains there. You can get an open intake if that's what you meant. Definitely get at least a pyrometer and a trans temp gauge. I do agree that I wouldn't waste money on a valve body and TC as when the rest of the tranny goes it'll take those with it then you'll be buying them over with the rebuild. Either buy a BTS now or just save your pennies and wait until your current tranny goes and buy a BTS then.

I would get a ported outlet and a gutted pedistal. also do a AIH delete and get a adjustable wastegate. I have TW tunes and the heavy tow is very nice. I use it all the time and when I tow. EGT's stay nice and cool.
