Post AOD Valve Body ?s

When I put together my transmission orininally, I put in an Art Carr shift kit. The instructions were really vague and some of the springs weren't colored that were supposed to be colored, and there were extra springs which added to the confusion. make a long story short, im unhappy with the way it shifts. (TV cable is adjusted properly) I was thinking of going to pick-n-pull and getting a valve body out of one of their dime a dozen AODs they have laying around and put it in my AOD to see if I like the way it shifts. If I like the way it shifts (quality wise), then I think I'll buy a transtar shift kit for firmer shifts to put in that one because they seem to have a good rep.

I know they made modifications to AODs throughout the years of their production, but my question is...Are all valve bodies interchangable between the AODs? Or do I need to find a valve body from an 88 AOD to fit mine.

How much have you already stuck into your trans? I'v posted this many times before but here it goes.This is what I had done to my 88 Towncars AOD and what I paid. I am guessing my trans can take up to 400-450 hp.2nd is a bit hard but 3rd and 4th shift quick and smooth.

1.4r70w gear change-$400.00
2.Shift kit(brand name unknown)-$100.00
3.Rebuild w/refurbished valve body and converter-$1100.00

You really need to talk to -these- folks regarding your trans. Tell them what you have done and what you expect. They will help you to get it set correctly.
