BTS Valve Body ... Where?

I hear everyone raving about the BTS valve bodies but I have yet to find a place that sells them let alone does a good job of explaining why you need it. Anyone know a good site to read up on it and where one might actually purchase one?

Brian can get way busy, if you have a hard time getting through call Rocky. Rock can answer all your questions and order up your BTS valve body.

I have one but honestly am not impressed with it.. I have had other valvebodies that performed better. I am gonna try a John Wood Valve Body in the spring along with a good aftermarket torque converter.

I have never heard of someone not impressed with the BTS VB. What didn't you like about it?

Also, why are you changing your VB so much?

The tranny is shifting way too soon, and not downshifting when it should. I have had Jody @ DP look at programming several times and made slight adjustments but its had not helped much..

As far as why I am changing VB, this is my second transmission.. The first one I lost reverse in it and had a Factory Tech VB it in.. The tranny was under warranty from Ford so they put a new transmission in it. I read about all the rave over BTS VB and so I ordered one and installed it. I like how my other tranny shifted, nice clean and crisp and shifted at the right times.. This one is in a brand new tranny too. Before installing the BTS just before you ask, it shifted just fine with none of the issues I am having so its not the transmission. I have called BTS a few times and they blame it on programming of course. But like I said, it shifted fine before I installed the BTS.
