th 400 transbrake??? or valve body

i was looking at a trans brake for my turbo 400 and have a couple questions
1 does a trans brake have a valvebody built in tto it or do you have to buy both????

2 if i have a transbrake do i have to have a high stall converter to leave a like 4000

3 if i have a 4200 stall converter will it leave around that or do i need a transbrake to go with it???

#1 The TransBrake is built into the ValveBody, purchased as 1 piece.
#2 A TransBrake will allow a high stall converter to stall at a higher rpm than Foot Braking.
#3 Yes and Depends on how hard/fast you want to take off.

Chris @ CKPerforamnce has developed a nice T-Brake. > http://www.ckperformance.com/resourc...LVEBODIES.html
The Griners are nice also. > http://www.extremeautomatics.com/pro...alvebodys.html

Some internal mods to items usually are required with trans brake install.

Hughes sells a very good - fast release trans brake
