The valve body of the transmission, or control valve, is the central nerve system that tells the transmission what to do, at what time. It contains springs, valves, and many fluid passages that are critical to the proper operation of the transmission.
Hughes Performance has taken liberty to improve on the numerous updates and changes provided by the manufacturer and supply you with the most up to date, state of the art valve bodies on the market today. The consistency and durability you will receive with the Hughes valve body line, is second to none.
Hughes Performance offers 3 different control valve bodies for your specific application. The first version is our automatic/manual valve body, installed on all of our “-1” street/strip transmissions. The second version is a full manual control valve body, used more specifically for all types of racing. The third version available for most racing applications is the fluid release transbrake control valve body. It is designed with drag racing in mind and is not recommended for the street.
When ordering a valve body from Hughes, please be as accurate with your application as possible to insure the best results. For further information, please call our Tech Line for assistance. Order these valve bodies to enhance the operation of your functional transmission.
Once these are installed on your unit, they cannot be returned just like electrical components. Don’t assume installation of one of our valve bodies will or can fix the operation of your transmission if it has a malfunction.
