::SOLD::

toyomoto valve body upgrade stainless steel rods
makes your transmission shift faster and firmer
good up to about 450 hp
comes with detailed installation instructions

this was purchased to do the upgrade, but i will be sending my car to SRT to install my turbo kit, and they'll be doing my vb upgrade themselves. so i dont need this anymore. the guy i bought this from included a link where you can view all installation pictures full size.

$70 shipped

not really sure of the exact effects, but apparently the shifting is much quicker. not necissarily jerkier. those that have this installed all have good things to say about the upgrade. i haven't sent my car to SRT yet so i dont know.

maybe someone with this upgrade can Give some insight?

so far i've gotten a few offers so hopefully these will be gone by this week cuz i need to buy some last few minor things for my turbo kit!!

Is this authentic Toyomoto or ebay knock-off? Since you have no instructions, do you have a receipt or anything else to prove which it is?

how hard are these to install?
apparently not too difficult if you know what you're doing. i dont know much about this, which is why SRT will be doing my upgrade for me.

not sure, but i'll find out tomorrow from the person i bought the whole turbo kit from. i do know that they're stainless steel (not aluminum), and i DO have the complete detailed instructions, with a website that has full-sized colored pictures to go along with the instructions.


Is That All U Need For The Upgrade
i believe so. but you or somebody has to open up the vb to replace the rods. (there's a thread of a member who did this recently, you can probably search for it)

It easy to install. After you drop the VB out of your tranny, you will see 3 alum. pods. Pull those out and if you under the car the springs will fall out.
Be EVER SO CAREFUL with your VB when letting it down. Match the springs with your new VB rods. Lengh wise. Place them in and place the VB back up in there. On one of the corners of the VB you will have this black plastic peice with a little spring and a ball. Make sure its back in the right spot.(thats why I said to be careful letting it down) That easy. Get a new tranny filter while your there.

The shifting is based on how hard your in the gas. You drive normal(grandma) then you won't hardly see it. But at WOT, hold on! DON'T do anything stupid on a corner......your tires will come lose. (scared the piss out of me)

Free bump, guys this is a great price. Safer on your tranny and only takes and hour to do. Or have a shop to it. Either way a must needed mod. Buy with confidence!!!!
