Which Valve Body

I think I am gonna try a valve body. Thought about putting Tugger in myself. But like the idea that if anything goes wrong that I have original to put back in. Looking for input from anyone that put their own Tugger in, used a Wood body or the FTVB. I realize that Wood and Evans are both good. I am just looking for personal experiences though. Please feel free to PM me if you don't want to put it in public. I primarily use the truck for weekend driving and hauling my 5th wheel. About 11k is weight. Thanks.

Well i really like my JW VB and have had a lot of people say they like BTS VB to. I have heard FTVB shift really hard if u do not get your chip re-burnt for it if that is true but its been told to me

The reason for the hard shifting is when you already have your custom chip and then you get a VB. The chip makes more line pressure and when you get a VB it doesn't shift the same anymore. You should always get your chip re burnt after you install a VB.

I would definiley get chip reburned. I would only be asking for trouble no matter what brand I go with if I increased line pressure and aftermarket VB. It's just a hard decision on which one to go with. With no negatives I guess thats good so far.

I would in my opinion go with a BTS valve body, but they are all good.

I didnt install it ,I had my tranny guy(racing teammate)install it.After watching him do it,I am confident I could have done it.I think it is a good kit for the money
