ihelp with chips and tranny ideas

ok guys so I was going to go with swapping a 6 speed in my truck but after recently moving to a city and all I just want to keep my auto and just build it a little...im not wanting to dump a couple thousand dollars in a whole new built trans...all im wanting is to make the shifts smooth and make the trans be bullit proof and hook up better so my thoughts was valve body and torque converter???am I even close? and I already have the 6.0 cooler due to the current trans puking trans fluid out the top a couple years ago:/
and I have been running edge evolution for like 7 years and have always heard bad things on them so I have never went over 60hp setting and have to leave it on my truck till I get a different one because I cant stand how slow the truck is with the 35's and all
so I have ssen good things on php???
I want to get a new chip and one I can switch on the fly instead of 10 min in a parking lot and I am goin to get a cold air intake..
so heres the list...just not sure on which brands..
1.valve body
2.torque converter
3.CAI
4.some knind of better tunes that switch on fly
5.guages...idk what ones or brand??
6.any other mods that aint outrageous you guys suggest

Get yourself some gauges first...

Isspro EV2- Pyro 0-1600 or 0-2000, Boost 0-40 and Tranny temp 100-280*

Once you have that covered then get yourself a Hydra chip from Power Hungry Performance. Getting some good tuning, both power and drivability will make all the differance in the world.

If after that you still think you need to add a valve body then by all means do so, but good tuning will fix 90% of the shifting issues.

Intake, thats up to you, the factory one is fine with stock injectors. The AIS intake is a good intake as well, fits factory and flows enough for 400-450...

Thats a good start.

Do yourself a favor and avoid glowshift. I deeply regret buying them.

Not trying to thread jack but where can someone buy a valve body?

The problems I keep having consist of inaccurate readings with my EGT gauge. Sometimes I'll get on it a liltle bit and the gauge will be laid over at 1500 degrees, I have a mini heart attack then flick the guage and it goes back to what it should be. Trust me that mini heart attack every time you drive your truck is not worth it no matter how inexpensive they are. I am 17 and I was on a budget when I bought them, now I'm saving up for a set of isspro's.

I tried to read up on cheap effective mods before doing mine on this truck.
1. 6637 intake
2. 4 inch diamond eye straight pipe
3. Php Phoenix chip (hydra would be nice, especially with the current sale for 375 I believe)
4. Gauges (went with glowshift as truck isn't my daily driver and so far have been good)
5. Transmission cooler is my next possible mod along with a reburn of my chip
