Vehicles with listed GM transmissions may exhibit insufficient line rise in drive ranges, soft shifts and/or burnt clutches. These problems may be caused by continuous oscillation of the boost valve within the boost sleeve, creating excessive wear and a path for EPC fluid pressure to leak to exhaust. Sonnax boost valve kit 104520-12K has upgraded materials and minimal clearances to prevent wear and restore proper hydraulic control. The sleeve also has a slightly larger EPC feed orifice to provide quicker throttle response. A new pressure regulator valve outer spring is also included to replace weakened original springs and provides a modest 5 psi increase across the pressure curve.
Sonnax valve body layouts provide a detailed overview of individual units making it quick and easy to determine what’s available for the specific valve body you’re working on. See all Sonnax valve body layouts.
Vacuum testing at the port(s) indicated fails to hold the recommended minimum in-Hg, or if wear is visually detected.
