yes. unlike the stock valve body, this aod "hold" valve body is designed to hold the aod transmission in second. with a stock valve body, the only way to hold the trans in second is to shift from first to drive, then back to first. this is hard on the transmission and not a reliable way to insure that the trans stays in second like you want it to.

There is no switch for this valve body, it is all still hydraulically actuated. In stock form, your shifter allows you to select P-R-N-OD-D-1. With this valve body, if it were printed out, the selections would be P-R-N-OD-2-1. With this valve body you can manually select and hold 1st and 2nd gear. When in OD, it will shift like a normal automatic transmission.

Yes sir, this valve body also incorporates Performance Automaic's shift improvement modifications to firm up the shifts on the otherwise sluggish AOD. Not only do you get the "Hold" benefits, you also get the improved shift feel that would normally come from a shift kit.

So I've looked over the other questions and hope I'm not asking a redundant or stupid question. I understand how it works I'm just curious with this valve body there is no more "D"RIVE selection? Am I understanding that correctly? So if I was to stick it in what would normally be "D" which is obviously the first 3 gears, instead it would be in second or does is just "hold" like it says when you're racing it? Would "D" still function normally if you just put it in "D" and drove it putting it in "OD" when you needed 4th gear? This is more out of curiosity than anything, I normally drive it in "D" is why I'm asking only putting it in "OD" when necessary. Thanks for any info.

Due to the re-working of the valve body if you put your shifter into D it will only allow for it to shift from 1st to 2nd. They transmission will shift normally if the shifter is put into the OD selection.
