    Transgo Kit, Superior Kit, Sonnax Boost Valve, new EPC and still have shift flare

    Increased Ration Boost Valve, I wonder if the upgraded Servo Pistons would help?

    Read alot now a few questions for those in the know. 5r55e

    Yes, just drop the pan and the filter. then there are 23 bolts that hold the VB in place. The VB diary has the torque specs and order they should be torqued. As for the TC, sorry but you gotta drop the tranny for that one.

    5r55e Broken Intermediate band

    He is including the VB upgrades. But, I think I might buy a rebuilt 5r55e on EBAY from Tranzparts....Does this sound like a good idea...just search ebay for the 5r55e and look for the painted one for $550 starting bid. I really need some input on this one. Thanks

    5r55e Broken Intermediate band

    It's definately a broken band...are there any upgrades for the transmission itself and not the Valve Body? I got a few quotes for around $1400 for a complete rebuild of the transmisson and the torque converter installed...how does this sound? The one guy was telling me that the transmission...

    New 5r55e VB from Ford with upgrade

    ok, I redid my VB(new epc soleniod, sonnax boost valve, only the springs from Superior shift kit) in my 99 Ranger about 10,000 miles ago for the 2-3 flare.

    Followed the 5r55e rebuild diary but still have code

    I got you on that Brooklyn, I meant boring out a few VB's with the reamer. How long will the reamer stay within spec? I know this is hard to judge but I was looking for a round about number.

    Followed the 5r55e rebuild diary but still have code

    Well, I have been driving my truck and everything seems to shift fine but every once in a while i get a hard 1 to 2 shift. My light comes on but when I took it to the tranny shop to get the code read it shows no code stored (a very reputable tranny shop I might add) so now I'm at a total loss...

    Followed the 5r55e rebuild diary but still have code

    Since I just did the VB upgrade ( I think I might add the Sonnax end plugs now) and I have hardly driven my truck at all since. If I take out the VB again can I reuse the new bonded separator plate I just put int?
