Quoted for truth. Get the John Wood VB. At that point, you have a good setup. I'm going BTS rebuild my trans, but I'll be running a JW VB. Jody has no problem with this.Jody and John Wood work very closly together to make the trans work just right with Jody's tunes.
So, with all that said, I would recommend getting a valve body from John Wood. They are available through ITP diesel.
There is no difference I can speak of between them for "reliability". The only VB's I would use are BTS, John Wood, or FTVB. They are all within a few dollars of each other.Right on, are there any differences in reliability between the two, or for that matter, are there any differences at all. Also, who out there is running a John Wood Valve body, and how do you like it?
Is there any difference between the shift feel of the two transmitions. I want it to be quick and firm enough to keep my tranny going, but I don't want to be thrown around.
