Last I looked the casting was $250, it's down to $186 so I am buying one.

There is a thread somewhere where someone swaps the valves over to a new casting. looks easy enough. I am a little uncomfortable with the VB wear in my 2003 and although the TransGo valve has been working well these past months I would be more relaxed in general if I moved that valve to a new casting.

There is a good amount of hook in the deepest bore in the main pressure valve bore in my S8's VB at 108K miles.

Guess I'll be getting another AFT scalp treatment this spring! I'm glad I put hex heads in to replace the two tight-clearance bolts under the cat converter.

There was some good info on the VB swap I think I posted on AW, I will look for the thread (since I will need it for this job).
