Not at all, but it would not hurt to put a good valve body in. It would help your stock trany in the long run.

Re: What to do?

not in the beginning no, but if you go with edge or bully dog they tend to eat transmissions. If you go with a reputable tuner like dp,php or many others your tranny will be just fine for a while. I have 180k miles on my 97 with dp tuner intake and exhaust with stock trans still. just depends what you plan to do with the truck and how you treat it. Its inevitable that you will have to build you tranny in the future though i put a shift kit and triple disc converter in my buddies truck and it made a world of difference

As long as you have the money do the VB and have your chip burned for it. My buddy just put a JW vb in and I gotta say I noticed a difference. He got his from ITP Diesel.
