Anyone here run a manual valve body on the street? Was thinking about putting one in but didn't know how they were for the street.

yes i run one on the street shifts way better when you shift its right there its ok but if you down shift them they can blow up if you drive it alot on the street just put a shift kit in it and leave it alone great if you race it alot i like it but if you drive a lot can be a pain but that is just my thoughts

Thanks for the input. Is it like a manual when you stop? do you have to down shift it everytime? or could you just stop then down shift? Maybe I'll just leave it alone for now since it will see a bunch of street time.

its like letting the clutch out instantly when u drop a gear! its in gear or not. if you downshift its intantly in that gear. not like a non manual auto!

you can down shift , but not at high rpm. if you downshift the tires will instantly drop in speed ,its like dropping a gear w a stick n just poppin the clutch ,instead of letting it gradually engage.

if you run a manul valve body you have to change your shifter because the gear pattern is in reverseit goes p r n 1 2 3

You can get a non reversed manual valve body. I think I'll just stick with what I have for now. Then find a real manual to go in it.

I did one in my C4 about 8 years ago. It wasn't hard. Just read the direction very carefully. Unless you got one with a transbrake then that is a pain-in-the-ass because the tranny has to come out of the car. With a transbrake you have to modify the pump.

I should put a brake in it but that doubles the price and well I'm done spending money I don't have on this car. Plus I'm thinking of putting a Muncie in it.

Yes they are a huge pain in the ass. It was like that scene from Days of Thunder when Robert Duval was talking to the car and looked down and there was a huge puddle. I was getting ready to put it on the trailer and noticed a huge puddle. Wtf.
