Positive shifts, increased clutch holding power! 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 valve body 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. This building process also eliminates the often referred to "Shuttle Shifting" or hunting-for-gears in the 48RE transmissions.
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 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.

hi - do I need something else beside the gasket? - is it plug and play type - is the original pan is good to receive this valve body or? thanks Denis?
You will need fluid and BD recommends a tube of red Transgel to aid in re-installation. The original pan works fine. The electronics from your valve body need to be transferred over. Or you need to purchase new electronics for it(Gov Pressure Solenoid & Transducer). BD sells a valve body with the electronics upgrade for 773 plus core.
I have an exhaust brake now is there anything special I need to add ??
No nothing needs to be modded on the valve body.
I currently have a 2003 dodge 3500 with a fully built BD transmission. I am experiencing the 2-3 shuttle that is described in the description. Is this part a guaranteed fix for that issue??
If it is fully built it would have that valve body in it. We couldn't garuntee it will fix your issue no. I would contact BD diesel and talk to one of their transmission techs about that issue.
Does this include the governor pressure solenoid?... it looks like it might be pictured off telhe right side of the valve body in the picture?
Hi Jacob The part number you are asking about does not come with any electronics. So to answer your question, no, it does not come with the governor pressure solenoid. If you are looking for a BD valve body that does, I would consider PN: BD-1030423E.
