I found a real old post that referred to a boost valve can someone tell me what that is and do I need one in my aod Silverfox said to set tv pressure to 5lbs at 1000 rpms but then said that was with boost valve giving me the impression that setting was only if you had boost valve did I read that right Thanks ,Michael

this valve is two piece outer sleve and inner spool any way it wears out and couses week or delayed shift .some have orings on the outer sleve some models delete the orings and have a tighter fit to overcome leekage it would be advisable on instalation of a valve bodie reprogaming kit (shift kit )to install one . most kits do not include them. they also make a special one for use when doing a wide ratio convertion. hope this satisfies your interest.

I've recently gone through my C6,using this forum as some of my technical reference.When cleaning and checking my valve body,I didn't seem to have any boost valve issues(score marks or sticking/binding)so I just reinstalled it.I did use a transgo shift 67-1-2 kit following all of their instructions and haven't had any issues-but this winter when the car is put away,I think I'll replace the boost valve seeing as though I've done everything else(cheap insurance?).I do have a wide ratio kit and a sonnax R code servo.Do you recommend a sonnax boost valve?Seeing you mentioned the wide ratio kit,should I be using something specific? All feedback is greatly appreciated.Thanks,Steve

yea i think michel is working on a aod trans. im not to versed into the c6 if there is a wide rotio avalible then yes the new wide ratio valve would be a great investment, although no noticable improvement may be noticed.
