Product Description

The answer that AOD owners are looking for. Performance Automatic came up with a valve body that operates normally when the selector is in the O/D location but you can also shift each gear manually by pulling the selector down to first, bumping it up a notch will shift to second and hold it through the RPM until you bump it to the O/D position which will put it in drive.

Basically this allows you to shift the transmission manually without "Tricking" the transmission into holding second gear.

This is not a "constant line pressure" or "fixed line pressure" valve body. The TV cable is retained and the line pressure is still variable based on throttle position and TV cable adjustment.

5 Stars   Great valve body!!!
By on 1/26/2015
Image uploaded by Thomas H. I have a 91 GT and she was shifting way to early, even with my foot to the floor, it would shift at or before 3,000 RPM. I did some research and tried first installing a TransGo HI REV kit in the governor. That did not work so I changed the fluid and filter, still nothing. I had it looked at and was told the valve body was losing pressure at the Throttle Valve input on the valve body and that replacing the valve body was my best bet. I figured might as well get a good one. I was going to go with the regular street/strip but then read about this one and figured it would be good for the dragstrip when I get her to that point.

Fixed my shifting issue and love the "HOLD" feature. Good quality piece as it is a Ford valve body rebuilt and modified, ready to be bolted right in. Went in without a hitch, torqued to specs and followed the instructions provided when adding fluid, worked perfectly. Shifts are firm and crisp but not crazy harsh when driving regular, just nice and solid. Very pleased all around with this valve body.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I put the valve body in yesterday and love it. Nice hard tire chirps and the ability to hold 2nd gear is great. It feels like a totally different car and a lot more fun to drive. The part is truly and remove and replace piece.
