    Anybody ever install one of the high performance valve bodies for the A750F? Like the Nomad valve body offered here & here...

    This would be WAY beyond my skills to do, but the one guy I found who had done it blogged that it radically improved the shifting capabilities on & off road in his A750F automatic in his Land Cruiser Prado. His story is here...

    Just curious of anybody with a Taco had done this & their thoughts.

    So nobody has any thoughts on this, huh? Interesting because the guys who have done it claim it's a significant improvement to the 5-speed auto, on road, off road, and I guess even MPG.

    I know the Lexus IS300 guys who had automatic transmissions would all do VB upgrades too. It was quite interesting because after that those trannies would hold over 450whp when they wouldn't hold shit stock.

    It's quite a lot but if you are making a ton of power I'd say go for it. Power's nothing without the ability to put it down.
