Beefing up the 545RFE

I just ordered all the components to beef up my transmission. Billet input, clutch hub and the overhaul kit, all from TCS. I have had good luck using them through my work and they have very nice pieces. Now I just need a valve body from Sharadon...

I had never heard of them. Do they have a website? I can't seem to find anything except a UK company.

Billet input is a waste of money

Red Eagle clutches. Plus, you'll need to drill a few other holes in the OD clutch hub to help lubricate the outer OD clutch. If you don't, the outer OD clutch will get fried.....

I ordered the valve body from Sharadon today. I called Superstreet three times and was told that a different guy would call me back, that never happened. Being that I deal with people on the phones everyday, it is one of my biggest pet peeves when I am told I will be called back and then it doesn't happen. Gives me the impression that my business isn't that important.
Anyways the valve body is on its way, the rest of the overhaul components have arrived and I am getting a permit tonight to sneak the truck into the dealership to rip out the transmission this weekend. It is fairly slow around here at Christmas time so I will have time to tinker.

Ok re-assembly is about to begin. Couple of burnt clutch plates and a nasty groove cut into the O/D clutch hub.
