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 shits 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.
