New to Diesel

Im fairly new to diesel engines but I recently purchased a 2002 F-350 CCLL with an automatic transmission with about 100,000 miles on it. I have already put a 4 inch exhaust, DIY Intake and I am having my TS- 6 position chip retuned by Tony Wildman after reading so much about his tunes. My question is what is the most cost-efficent upgrade for my transmission? It wasnt horrible with the TS chip but it wasnt great either. I want to eventually get a BTS tranny but was wondering if there was anything I could do now(cheaper) that would extends its life and performance?

A good cooler. A cooler from a 6.0 is a direct bolt up. Great cooler.
A valve body will help a lot. Factory Tech, John Woods, or BTS.

VERY good. Bolts up DIRECTLY in place of yours now. Literally, unbolt and remove old one, bolt in new one. Hook up hoses. Done.
