Default Has anyone done this mod?

In the latest issue of 4WD Toyota Owner Mag (Rachel's mag ), there is an article on page 46 about an Auto Trans Tuneup by switching to a different Valve Body Kit, plus other items as options.

Has anyone in our group done this mod, and if so, how did it work out. According to the website, the price is $1272, not $700 for the kit. There are actually two kits for the A343F (FZJ-80), the Nomad and Extreme Valve Body.

Comments?

I highly recommend IPT or Level 10 for moded A340 valve bodies and/or trannys and/or torque converters. The auto and converter in Wild Rice is an IPT and it does exactly what I requested.
