Generally bearings are not a issue. If it is destroyed you will have more needs.
A heavier link for KD band is recomended along with improved servo and lever.
Low Reverse servo upgrade. Does kit include new KD band?
Cooler cleaner a must.

Not sure about the Revmax...Heard the name a few times and nothing bad out of em...I know they are alot cheaper than the "big names"...just because they are cheaper don't mean they aren't just as good. My buddy has a 6.4 powerstroke and he had a suncoast in his and fried it in two races at the drag strip. Put in a daaco..(a local company) triple disc and has never had a problem with his converter since. Let us know how it works out

Yeah I've heard alot of good things about them....Most big companies like to put alto red eagle in their tranny's but I think both are pretty comparable and would serve you just fine...also let me know how you like your revmax VB too i've been thinking about going with their stuff i'm fixing to do a rebuild VB and TC myself...let me know how you like those

Stay with the blues for clutches. The reds are more for racing. Youll get better life out of the blues for daily driving.

I bought all my stuff so far from Daaco. The clutches in it are all Raybestos.
First trip I bought the master kit, which was all the clutches, steels, o-rings, paper gaskets, and some snap rings. I also bought thrust washer kit and bushing kit. That was like 250. Next call was for an extra OD clutch, since I got distracted while cutting open the pack and sliced one, plus I bought new torrington bearings for the OD unit and I also bought a new OD sprag(or overrunning clutch). Total for that was like 90 bucks.

The KD band that dozer mentioned is the front band.

Well its just plain ole raybestos clutches. I didnt ask for anything special, I just wanted quality stuff, and it seems to be. Daaco has a good rep for the most part. I don't know what they make themselves, all seems to be repackaged, but they are somewhat convenient to me.

Yeah, for a stock rebuild it really does not matter who you go with. There are only a few companies that actually make the clutches anyhow... Good luck!
