Bruce what are the benefits of the ccv mod? Clean up engine bay? Is valve body all you think on a tranny? What about the converter? What all will you gain with a valve body?

The ccv mod just diverts the oily gasses away from enterin the intake which then collects in the ic causin oily boots. Petroleum deteriorates silicone so its rough on boots. As for tranny i suggest cooler and vb, tc can be done but i dont suggest gettin a super expensive one one because if the trans lets go and debris enters the tc its done, you'll never get it out with cuttin it open which is costly. Also bts allows you to use the vb later on down the rd in a full build.

It isn't in depth at all took me about 30 minutes. It takes about 5 minutes longer than changing the trans filter. They are about $250 and they quicken the shifts so the trans doesn't hang in between shifts for so long. It keeps the trans a lot cooler and makes the shifts alot firmer and crisper, they don't feel sloppy with a vb.


Fat finger from my phone.

A question for you all.

It's the wife's rig. 180K on the clock and other than an aftermarket air intake system and filter it's stock. I do run 33" tires. Is the CCV and the VB something that would help keep this thing alive longer. We have had no real big problems with this thing. In the process of replacing the HPOP and IPR. I have also done all the fuel o rings from Guzzle's.

One more question. Is there a write up on doing the CCV and VB with instruction?

Thanks.
