C-4 trans works very well, I like them.
Buy either v-body , the shifts will be fine.
I've used Performance Automatic v-bodys (trans brakes), they work excellent

What added 'band'? You won't be going into the trans for a manual valve body install. The valve body's pistons (slide valves), springs, ball placement and modified separator plates dictate that function. There are kits, TransGo is one, that allow for either manual/auto or full Manual valve body modification to your own valve body, or you can go with a complete valve body from any number of suppliers. To the best of my knowledge, all 'full manual' valve bodies will have braking because they will engage all gears at all speeds if selected. A manual/auto VB (upshift manually or use as a full auto shift) will not. I've used them both and prefer the full manual forward shift myself.
The spring rates/removal and separator plate drilling will determine the harshness and speed of the shift.

|68NovaSS||I don't understand your question, with a full manual valve body, if you pull it into first gear range, it's going into first gear period, hopefully when you're at a stop.|

|jaguarxk120||Try fordmuscle.com they have a complete section on the C4 transmission. Maybe more than you want to know. The guy's there are very helpful, but just going thru the listing you my find what you want. Good luck Tom F|

C4 full manual valve body
On a C4 with full manual valve reverse body would having engine-braking in 1st gear slow down the 1-2 shift timing? I want this trans to shift real fast!
