Dp 140 tune and a John Wood Valve Body

I would like to put a Dp-tuner on my truck with the 140 tune being my highest horse power setting but I'm wored about my transmission. Would the John Wood Valve Body help my transmission or would i just be throwing my money away?

It should help, just let Jody know that you have the valve body and he'll adjust the tune for it.

It will help out alot, and you do not have to tune for the JW VB as you do for the for the BTS VB. My BTS VB made a great difference in my truck.

I had a JW Valve body in my first tranny with the same tune. Shifted and worked wonderful as I understand Jody spends alot of time with John Wood in tranny tuning.

What does Jody adjust in the programing for the VB as apposed to not having the VB??? I don't have a VB and would like to install one.
