When shifting into 3rd @ full throttle it just slides into gear, and the other day I tried the 150 shot and it really didn't like going into 3rd. What can I do to this trans so that it grabs 3rd just as good as the 1st to 2nd gear shift without doing a complete rebuild. ie manual valve body? Which one should I get?

specs
th350
aftermarket heavy duty clutches
4000 converter
shift kit

thanks

If the trans has been sliding for a few shifts now , it will be slightly if not totally fried. There are several valve body modifications to make as well trans mods that would help but for a maximum shift in all ranges a reverse pattern valve body would give you that providing the trans is up to the task.
I like the forward pattern stuff the best but 3rd gear is tricky to get on as hard as 2nd.

If I were go out and purchase a TCI reverse manual valve body what else would I need to do to my trans to make it hold up?

Hutch, I'm kinda cheap, would I be able to get away with just throwing in a valvebody? BTW the car would maybe only run 10.50's.

thanks
