Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body

Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body

The Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body upgrade is the perfect accessory to improve the shifts and reduce the flaring in your transmission. Whether it be a performance chip and exhaust upgrade that you have done or you’re loaded to the hilt, our Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body Upgrade handles them all.

Designed and manufactured in Australia to suit the harshest outback conditions so that your automatic transmission is not the weak link. By fitting one of our Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body Upgrades you will see a reduction in heat, fuel consumption AND a driving experience that you will want to remember.

Of course, if you have turned your 3 tonne slug into a formula 1 race car, then maybe the Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body Upgrade might suit you better.

That sounds exactly like what I need!
Just one question….

What is a “Valve Body”?

I’m glad you asked.

Well. Put simply, it is like a maze with lots and lots of doors (valves). The doors can be controlled via hydraulics or via electronics (in late model vehicles). Each of the doors either prevents oil from flowing, allows it to start flowing or varies the pressure at which it can flow. When a door is opened the oil can apply pressure to a clutch or route the oil to another door. By combining a series of door opens/closes, the transmission can engage or disengage certain clutches which in turn can shift gears, engage the torque converter lockup, or neutralise. So one set of doors might give you 1st gear, while another set of doors might engage reverse.

By re-calibrating the flow of this oil through the use of modified valves (doors), separating plates and springs, we can affect how clutches apply, provide better lubrication, increase longevity and even increase the flow to the coolers.

Ok. Now tell me why I need one!

Finding a vehicle that will tow caravans, horse floats, boats, etc… as cleanly and efficiently as we would like is becoming more and more difficult to find. Most manufacturers are overlooking the basic capabilities, ending up with a very frustrating towing vehicle that has a tacho needle that is more suited to a sound system at the local nightclub. These same frustrations are experienced by owners who have installed performance upgrades to their vehicle such as ECU Flash Tuning, Performance Chips and Exhaust Systems.

This lack of capability can result in flaring (or slipping) while changing gears as the transmission computer system is not able to keep up with the extra load that you are towing or performance from the engine. In some cases it can be both of these elements resulting in premature wear on the clutch packs inside the automatic transmission and excessive repair costs earlier than expected.

So, we put together a development program and have come up with a cheap and easy way to turn your Automatic into a crisp shifting transmission without having to remove the transmission from the car. Drawing on the 100 plus years of automatic transmission knowledge and experience, Wholesale Automatic Transmissions developed the Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body Assembly Upgrade to tackle all of these elements, plus a few others.

The valve body has undergone a tremendous amount of testing and is a must for vehicles with performance chip upgrades, serious off road use and towing applications. The difference the recalibrated Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body makes to the vehicle is overwhelming. The transmission once fitted with the recalibrated Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body can handle more power and torque while also greatly increasing the cars towing capabilities. All this with nice crisp shift points even while towing.

 

The lack of natural engine braking needed during the downhill descents, especially while towing is a regular complaint with customers. We have addressed this by achieving an increase of approx. 10% natural engine braking on the majority of our re calibrated Valve Bodies.

With easy to read instructions for the removal and refitting of the re calibrated Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body, your transmission will be performing as you would have expected it to from the factory. Turning those long, frustrating and extended drives into pure heaven on wheels.

It is also recommended to upgrade your automatic transmission to Orto-Fluid Full Synthetic Oil at the time of fitting your Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body.

Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body

Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body!

Building on our successful Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body development program, the need for something to handle a little more kick was needed. Designed for it’s name sake, the Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body is the must have item for highly modified vehicles and extreme power upgrades. The Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body has been tested in the roughest and harshest of conditions to give your automatic transmission the greatest chance of hanging on throughout the rev range.

Providing the greatest clamping loads to all clutch packs from low RPM’s right through to redline, the Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body will give the transmission every chance of handling that ridiculous power that you so evilly want.

A chip and exhaust just doesn’t do it for me

The Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body will give new life to transmissions for daily drivers that have had major engine upgrades such as new turbo, supercharger or even an engine transplant. The Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body is essentially designed for those drivers that feel ‘A chip and exhaust just doesn’t do it for me’. We are talking about engine power or torque that is greater than 50% than what came out of the factory. A word of warning though, the Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body can be quite thumpy in the gear changes at low throttle. ie. if you are driving in heavy traffic at 10 to 30km/h. This is a result of the increase to the pressures for the clutch packs so that there is much greater clamping ability during the gear change.

The Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body is available to the following vehicles and is built to order. Please allow up to 2 weeks from date of payment for the valve body to be built.

Full Manual Heavy Duty Valve Body

Taking the Extreme to the Extreme!

Of course, if the Nomad Heavy Duty Valve Body or the Extreme Heavy Duty Valve Body are still not enough for you, then let me introduce you to the Full Manual Heavy Duty Valve Body. This upgrade is designed only for comp trucks.

The Full Manual Heavy Duty Valve Body removes all ECU interfaces from the transmission so that you have full control over the shifting of the transmission.

There is no pressure control as pressure is set to full power of the pump at all times.

There is no automatic shifting – you move the T-Bar to change gears

There is no automatic torque converter lockup – you need to switch it manually if you want it

There is no ECU to protect from water ingress
