  • valve body

    my valve body is shoot. i get the reverse slam, and car gets a limiter of 40-50 mph when the cars has been driven for more then 30 minutes on rather warm days. is there any fix to this. like swapping out the valve body, replacing the tranny it self? i wanted to do the conversion but i dont ( WONT ) have the money for it for at least another 3-4 months and i cant stand watching and hearing my car suffer when changing gears.

      is there any chance the bad valve body could damage the tranny at all? would it be beeter just to swap the valve body or get a whole new tranny?

          i didnt even think that was possible. but is there still any chance the bad valve body could have affected the tranny in any way?

Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

              the mp6 and 7 trannys are actually built rather well w/ helical gears
              and ive never seen even a diff go bad in one just the vbs
              you can change it in under an hour if you know some stuff its right up top
              mostly ive changed them for no reverse and delayed reverse when hot

                I believe you need a modified stock VB do have a manual operation ATX. And yes, lotsa Mopar muscle cars have these...even the super slow 3 speed Neons have an option for this. In fact, one such part is sitting in my garage right now...woulda made for an interesting driving experience...much less fun than a real MTX, but you had less to break and less ways to break it. Plus its just unique.

                Anyway...if anyone ever gets a hold of how to modify a Saturn VB for this, I'd love to know...I'm trying, on my own, to find out how, but I dont seem to have much luck with it right now.
