Factory Tech Valve Body opinions?

Hey guys I'm looking into getting a valve body, tired of my local tranny shop making "adjustments" and them fixing my problem. I have a feeling it's the valve body because hauling 8,000 lbs up a 6%-8% grade my second to third shift bucks and will continue to buck until I let off the throttle a little then it will engage 3rd. And my 3rd to 4th shift takes a while to do. So I've been looking into the BTS valve body and the JWVB and came across the factory tech valve body on dieselsite.com, anyone using one or heard any reviews on them?

Here is the link to the valve body http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...ROD&ProdID=251

Just a quick question..........I'm sure you know your truck very well and it may very well be a tranny issue, but are you sure it's not surge from the turbo? My '01 seemed like it was a tranny issue when I first got it and was towing my trailer. It turned out to be turbo surge so I replaced the compressor wheel and fixed it. Just a thought....

I have a FTVB in my trans, it's great no complaints, quick crisp firm shifts, it has helped my trans survive the hybrid injector beating that I give it on a regular basis

I know A LOT of people running FTVB's and every single one of them recommends the mod. You'll be happy.
