valve body question

Totally a beginner question but... does the jw valve body make a noticeable difference when running it with tunes or not really? i have about $600 in overtime to spend this friday on truck stuff and i plan on a valve body but if it's not going to make that much of a difference i may wait until next month and get the other stuff ive been wanting.

I don't know what "difference" you're looking for. It's not so much the fact that you "feel" the difference as it is the difference it makes to your transmission. That is, it's job isn't to "bang-gears" but rather to stop the trans from being in Two gears at once (adding to friction usage & building heat) that the factory uses to make shifts more "seamless". There IS a different feeling, it's just pretty subtle......

The VB is better for the Trans, Not you

I noticed the shifts were a little faster with the my JW valve body. Other then that, like NoRalPh said, its more for the trans.

I would just touch base with PHP to make sure there isn't going to be any issues between your tuners a VB. I know many tunes for a stock truck have trans adjustments.
