I would highly recommend
Thanks for your review and purchase with Diesel Power Products! Pretty low cost item and easy install for a commonly known issue.

What's up people of the internet? Well if you're like me you are reading the reviews of some product you are thinking about buying. Well today you're in luck. I recently purchased this part (ATS Diesel Performance GM Governor Solenoid Pressure Block Conversion Kit) for my 06 Ram 3500 MegaCab with the 5.9 Cummins and O so wonderful 48RE. Well if you're in this section looking at this part then you too must have transmission issues. Well first things first, DPP got me hooked up after a phone call to confirm it would work with in my application. Shipping was fast and free. Ok, now to back up a bit. 2 years ago I had replaced the factory governor solenoid for the upgraded factory one along with the pressure transducer. Symptoms were shuttle shifting and indecisive 1st second gear shifting. The factory upgraded one lasted 2 years but the problem returned about 3 weeks ago, so time to upgrade the upgrade.. Ok, back to the present. First thing to review, the packaging. Not that it's a big issue but I have to assume they test these parts before shipping (not DPP but wherever they come from). In the box was the new GM Governor Solenoid Pressure Block wrapped up in a greasy shop towel with someone's handprints all over it. Not that it's a big deal but part of me questions whether or not the part was used and they pulled it out of something else.. No deductions because packaging really isn't what I was paying for. Onto the part. As for the picture description, it's not really a CNC machined part. Its cast with machined ports and passages. No problem with that just letting you know. As for the no bolts included, that's correct. Your factory ones will work just fine. Fit was perfect and the wiring harness was perfect in length and plug type. Don't worry about not getting a new gasket because, if you are ordering this you need to also be ordering the BD Pressure Transducer Upgrade also. Why the transducer comes with a gasket and the conversion kit doesn't is beyond me. Now is the time to replace both of these parts. Did it work?? Of course it worked. No more shift issues (for now lol). As for which part was really bad, well it's hard to say but both of them fixed my issue using teamwork(your results may vary lol). The price seems fair for the quality. No complaints. If you install this it's a good time for a pan upgrade or at least a drain plug insert. I did that last time which sped the install time up to less than an hour from start to finish with hand tools. Install fear factor is a 1 on the scale 1-10. No tricks or special tools needed. Worst part is dealing with transmission fluid. Hopefully the helps someone on the fence about purchasing this. Tell Tyler L I sent you. See you on the next review...

I'm annoyed. The transducer is different on my 97 Dodge 2500 cummins. Though research, the 96-99 has a different pin style than the 00-07. Now I still have to buy another transducer. The staff was not knoweledgable on the product when I called to discuss. The block fit just fine and the governor solenoid is an improvement. I don't think I would have bought now that I have to spend an extra $60.

Very easy to install. Do install a drain plug. The transmission shifts better than it ever has.

Shift issues gone!
06' 3500 Mega Cab 5.9 with 48re. Bought along with upgraded BD transducer and the truck shifts awesome! Super easy install. No install instructions but if you know how to turn a wrench and swap tranny fluid you can install this with ease. Worse part is tranny fluid all over the arms and making sure you don't break the electrical connections when unplugging.

This is a great product I would recommend it to anyone
I put this product in my transmission and it is a big improvement over stock. It now shifts like it should I have nothing bad to say about the product

Gave this 3 stars because one came in my ATS stage 6 trans 1 1/2 yrs ago and it started throwing codes with only 15k on it. Never tow heavy. Not sure why ATS put this upgrade in but not the upgraded transducer? They used a factory plastic garbage one in a $6k transmission! But replaced both and now the trans shifts awesome again. Hopefully it lasts long with the upgraded transducer this time.
No I would not buy this
It does not come with a transducer or bolts or gasket. Need longer bolts to install on a 05 Cummins 48re. Very disappointed for the price.
