A decent valve body or separator plate that allows you to increase your line pressure will always help. However you are right about the next weak link. I call mine a Frankenstein 68. I run a lower stall triple disk BD converter as mine ballooned on me after running the seperator plate and increased line pressure. Not sure if it was a coincidence or not. When a performance converter locks up you know it, it can be pretty solid. It sure grabs and slingshots you forward when it locks though. Hence the next weakest link. Input or output shaft, roll the dice. So I have learned to use my foot when it changes gears, the most benefit I get out of it is my trans temperatures run ridiculously low for towing or anything for that matter.
I'm pretty sure the extra line pressure is good for my overdrives.
I think if I was to do it all over again I would've just ran this one till it died and had a new built trans show up at my doorstep With billet input and output. For now I just use my foot in between gears which still makes it a hell of a lot faster than a G 56. Maybe I'll get 300,000 out of this one who knows. I'm getting older and don't really care about 0 to 60 even though it does very well.
