PHP Tunes & John Woods Valve Body

I have PHP tunes in my 7.3
I received my John Woods valvebody today. Am I supposed run the current PHP tunes I have after i install the JW ValveBody? Or do i need to have PHP send me modified tunes that have the transmission file in the tunes removed?

Question also about the JW ValveBody. Can I reuse the gasket that is on my stock valve body now? And what is the torque specs for the valve body. I thought i read 14 pounds. Not sure....

I could get the tq specs out of my shop manual when I get off work in the morning if someone else doesn't respond before then.

Thanks bro that would be awesome if you can do that. I plan on doing it tomorrow in afternoon. Do you know if I need to get a gasket for this? It appears one did not come with it

Not sure about the gasket but as for the bolts and nuts the book says 9-11 Nm 80-100 inch lb which is right about 6.5-8 ft lbs

I would say the stock valve body would work I put a shift kit in my valve body and used the same gasket

Thanks DJM for the torq specs.

I just installed John Woods Body....Took it out for a drive in town and on the freeway.
The differance is night and day. I romped on it after i warmed up the tranny. I can say the harshness, the kick, plus the straining sound with the vibration is totally gone. Highly recommend...
***
I didnt run my PHP tunes out of concern that the extra pressure would some damage or the shift points would be all out of wack. Ill be getting the modified PHP tunes monday hopefully.

So do you have to adjust the tunes if you get a valve body? I will eventually be getting a PHP chip, but I was wondering if I should get the valve body first in case there are changes PHP has to do to the tuning?

PHP will have to adjust the tunes with the JW valve body. Which might include lowering the tranny line pressure and possibly the shift points. In theory the PHP tune does the same electronically as the John woods valve body does mechanically. But comparing them both, the mechanical solution is much much better. It shifts like a Cadillac now,,im serious...
It wouldnt suprise me if i get more life out of my tranny now since its much smoother. Im sure there are certain mechanical adjustments that can be done with the valvebody. That you cannot reproduce electronically now matter how good the tune.
