I would recommend a Borg Warner HD solenoid and a Rostra HP transducer instead of the ones you listed.
The Borg HD solenoid is every bit as good (and arguably better, given the GM solenoid's track record in its original GM application, but I digress...), and the Rostra HP transducer puts up with more pressure than the BD setup (which is just an early transducer with an adapter pigtail) in my experience. Plus, both of these items are considerably cheaper than the ones you listed.Can you give me a reason for your choice instead of the GM & BD?..............Thanks
A good manual valve is always a good idea, although the best one on the market (Superior...in my opinion) is only available at this time by buying their shift kit, which I would also recommend as a decent upgrade for the DIYer on a budget.Dynamic........Would adding a full flow manual valve to complement the BW Solenoid be a good idea?........ Thinking it would allow for a cooler charge in park?
Also as you said, Very stalk difference in prices for The GM governor solenoid upgrade ($144) and the BD pressure transducer kit ($165) ........Borg Warner HD
solenoid ($41) and Rostra HP transducer ($45).................I just ordered the BW Solenoid and will order the Rostra transducer. ......Do I need a billet housing
for the BW Solenoid......maybe for better fluid flow??
Yeah, Superior doesn't sell their manual valve and shuttle valve separately, so you have to buy their whole "shift kit". Though I'm not a huge fan of simply "shift kitting" the 4-speed Dodges, it's a heck of a lot better than leaving it stock, and it's a doable DIY project if you're organized about it.Would you have a link for this manual valve?.....really appreciate it!.....recap: Borg Warner HD Solenoid, Rostra HP Transducer & Full flow manual valve ...best means for this DIY without removal......Thanks again for the $$ saving tips........Scippy
Custom valve body (or even just a "shift kitted" valve body is better than stock), billet accumulator piston, billet intermediate servo (or at a minimum, a billet servo cover and pin plug), billet or reinforced band strut, billet band anchor, deep aluminum pan...Would the "plenty more you can do" be too much for you to name ?.........just trying to absorb all!......Thanks, Scippy
