An economical way to improve the performance and clutch life of your stock transmission is to install a BD Performance Valve Body. Our complete upgrade of the stock valve body consists of new valve designs, increased capacity springs, revised oil circuits and optimized governor piston dimensions which the improved oil flow reduces temperatures and lowers torque converter evacuation time for quicker clutch apply.
BD’s NEW DESIGN achieves up to 80% higher clutch apply pressures over the stock unit and up to 50% over the competitors with the increase starting at much lower engine rpm’s and at lighter throttle pedal position movement. Light throttle shift firmness is also maintained at these higher apply pressures.
With the new designed valve bodies achieving the higher pressures, a BD PressureLoc is no longer needed when an exhaust brake is installed to assist in preventing convertor lock up clutch slippage – this unit does it all!
(BD still recommends the use of a PressureLoc for transmissions not equipped with one of our new designed valve bodies when an exhaust brake is installed.)
We also added second gear lock-up capability that with the addition of one of our TorqLoc or TowLoc kits can offer serious engine retarding capability on towing applications.
Each valve body is tested to ensure proper function before shipping. While you’re replacing the valve body, add one of our heavy duty aluminum oil pans for greater oil capacity, cooler oil temperature and improved case rigidity.

Installed on 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Diesel.
Install instructions could be a little more clear but other wise the product is AWESOME, crisp shifts, firm response can really feel the difference when towing. No more shifting in and out of converter lockup. Good technical help if needed from mfg.

Valve body provide nice firm shifts but not harsh. Instructions were very easy to follow. Core credit was also an easy transaction. Only tip I can add is (if possible) as the instuctions state, verify your trans pressure with your existing valve body, it will come in handy.
