    I'll second the recommendation to look up SilverFox. Check out the Clickclick Racing forum as well. He's on there and its a dedicated auto transmission forum. I have a SilverFox valve body and overdrive servo and some other goodies to include a 2800 RPM converter and hardened input shaft. I've yet to find another AOD that shifts as good....

    I may give SilverFox's valve body a try. I have one with the epoxy-mod built by the guy who built my AOD (unfortunately he's now dead). It shifts firm and barks the 1-2, 2-3 upshifts and 4-3, 4-2 downshifts at heavy throttle. I'm pretty happy with it but I wonder if one of SilverFox's valve bodies would be a noticeable improvement, especially since I have a one piece input shaft and non-lockup converter in my car.

    What improvement are you looking for?? That sounds like everything and the kitchen sink!
    If shift points are your concern, that's easily cured without the need for an entire new VB.

    The valve body in the car has the epoxy mod. So I can set the shift light to a certain point and just shift the car manually. I just want to auto adjustable shift points, but that's probably not worth the $200-300 when I can do that manually as it is...
