Default Building my AOD

Planned on getting a manual valve body for my 87 5.0 with the aod. Was wondering, which MVB is best?

And is there any difficulty installing them?

You just want a shift kit transgo... Or a PA vlv body but there isnt any full mans for the aod or e that I have seen. But that alone isnt building just mods!

go lentech or don't bother. but consider a new trans from lentech. a manual valve body alone will gain you squat on such a weak inferior trans. you need a stall converter, valve body, syn oil, "a" servo, wider od band...lots of stuff

fyi 3000 stall converter minimum !!!! or leave it stock too
