Spend a little more money and get one from a vendor. They stand behind their products and also fund the site.

I would go with a JW valve body and a tuner like a DP instead of the shift kit.

I already have dp-tuner, but what is the difference in the shift kit and the reprogramming kit? do you use both of them together or just use one?? I would go with the jw or the bts but im a little strapped right now for spending cash (wife). i dont mind putting the kit in myself.

The JW valve body, I think is much better than the kit because you can tell him what tunes you have and he builds the vb accordingly. It will be built to suite your personal needs. With the vb and tuner there is no need for the kit that I can see. Mine works wonderfull. My dptunes were written knowing I would have John's vb so the chip controls the trans also and it's awesome. If you tow in the hills get the decell tune. it's a life saver. Will save your brakes a lot too. Just my $.02 from my own experience.
