Just fitted

Seems very good haven’t really tried it out yet, no towing

Thanks for the review, John. I'm confident the Nomad Valve Body will be up to the job when you get to try it out more.

Great product easy installation, quick delivery

I installed the nomad valve body, dual oil cooler and deep cast pan,the only problem I had was fitting the plastic sleeve for the electrical plug,it took a bit of fiddling and force to seat it properly,but then I was working only with ramps and axle stands,it would be easier on a hoist,just take your time,I completed it in a day just check you have the tools needed before you start,great instructions and some good youtube videos also help to know what your in for,well what a huge difference, quieter,smoother, cooler running, transmission temperature down 20 degrees, I haven't towed as yet but no doubt it will help the transmission have a better service life a worthwhile investment I think, a tip for people who are going to reuse the original transmission pan I drilled a 13mm hole in the bottom to drain it makes it a lot less messy and the you can weld or get fitted a sump plug for next time. I recommend the cooler and bypass valve and transmission pan modification as minimum for the BT50 but if you have the budget might as well do the valve body as well as it has to come out to put the bypass valve in, hope that helps someone down the track, happy customer.
