So it will be time to change my trans fluid soon and i been looking into transgo tugger kit or new valve body (BTS or JW).

I can't really figure out what is the reall difference between the 2. for what i can understand is a VB's is a plug in play kinda thing and the tugger kit is a DIY. M'I wrong? is both have the same result (or almost) ?

any info / recommendation will be welcome

Thanks

Most of the modified vb's you buy modded use the trans go kit.

They do a little more tweaking than the kit but I don't know if that justifies the extra money.

It's up to you really. A good in lbs tq wrench is a must

torque wrench are not a issue, i just brought mine into work last week to verified the calibration and they are good.

when i looked around it said to remove the trans to install the kit? isn't just the body valve who get modiffied?

It depends on the kit.

The tugger kit requires you to remove the pump and modify it. So that is a little more involved than just a valve body swap

The kit comes with all that stuff and more. That's just all of it separately.

No problem. It will shift much firmer for sure.
I know for a fact bts uses these kits when they mod a valve body.

He has a few other special tricks but I don't know those lol
