Some stupid word that someone came up with and all of Lux's little sheeple took a liking to.

Here's a Stage 4 TH400.This is the bad one,Stage 4,a step above Stage 3!
I had a stage zero TH400 in my 73 454 corvette after I put headers on it and they melted a section of transmission coolant hose.

All I ever get from people are the stage 0 transmissions.
I don't know why,but Stage sells,people love this stage shit.If this is what they want to hear,then that's what I'll tell them.

Stages of an engine: stock... modified... boat anchor :D

It's just more or less a sales gimmick. Nothing more.

The stages my engine have been in is apart, together and running, and together and broken.

I think this is just carry over from the air cooled bikes and way for harley to sell subpar motor upgrades to people

Stage 1: You mean I can make it go even faster?
Stage 2: IT'LL COST ME WHAT?!!
Stage 3: You [email protected]
Stage 4: OK, I'll take it.
Stage 5: What else can I do to it?
Go to to Stage 1.

Oh, wait, that's the owner stages, not the engine.

The solenoid you use is for a Trans brake.I use Hipsters.be careful with the torque converter you choose w a Trans Brake.One without ballon gussets will blow up like a bomb.Never put one in neutral and coast through the traps,same thing,it will blow up like a bomb!
I usually have some little plugs to take place of the diaphragm and to keep the modulator valve kept in the high line pressure position.The modulator diaphragm is spring loaded and keeps the valve pushed in for high pressure.No vacuum is used.That particular transmission is a manual shift forward pattern.It's real easy to make a transmission like the 400,the 350 and the 700 into a forward manual pattern.Manual shift automatics are modified in the governor for this,not the valve body.All you have to do is weld the governor weights so the governor valve is fixed to the inboard position.Grind a slot in the 1-2 shift valve so it holds low at any rpm,and wala,it's a manual shift transmission.
I don't buy shift kits in a box,I make them myself and stuff the profit in my pocket,instead of someone elses.pump boost valves and springs I have to buy separately.I use Sonnax parts for this.
I can't build a reverse pattern trans brake valve body cheaper than I can buy one from Hipsters.Hipsters uses the intermediate clutch instead of forward for the brake,and has the quickest release time on the market.This makes for a good 60ft time.
