transgo,bts or JW valve body

when i bought the truck the original owner has a built tranny installed and had the papers to prove it but it didnt state what valve body was used. so i plan on pulling it and installing one so i now whats in there. i now it has a BD tc and billet shaft. of those three whats the ideal valve body? the price is nice with the transgo.

i had a Factory tech valve body and i hated it. if its got a built tranny in it that already has a transgo kit and you put a aftermarket vb in it too it will tear up the trans

i would leave it be unless your feel that the shifts are sloppy, another option would be to get a chip that help quicken those shifts

Having a trans go and a VB will not tear your trans up.. Bts has them both.. BTS is the way to go in a 7.3

+1 for the transgo, it can also be redrilled to firm up the shifts even more. I drilled mine .030 over and loving it so far.
