Looks like just a new valve and drill bit. Don't like drilling that circuit. If Mark could email or fax directions I'd have more info on it. Bully dog instructions weren't available online--a dead link yesterday.

Bill of Meterials:
3 springs
1 Replacement Actuator
1 O Ring
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Steps:
1) Remove the transmission oil from the pan, some transmission pans do not have drain plugs, so the pan will need to be tipped to the side to drain the oil. You will need to use a 10 mm socket to remove the bolts that attach the pan to the transmission.
2) Inside the transmission there are three valve bodies. The one to be removed is the one farthest forward and is held in place by 11 bolts that man be removed by an 8mm socket and 2 nuts that can be removed by a 10mm socket. Once the valve body is removed, place it on a clean table.
3) Remove the retaining clip from the valve body that is holding the shift plug, by placing a ¼ in. bolt in the shift plug and slightly pushing in to relieve the pressure of the clip and remove the clip with a pick tool.
4) Using the ¼ in. bolt, remove the shift plug with a side to side motion to gain access to the spring as seen in the photo below. Remove the spring and place the new Bully Dog Spring inside the old spring.
5) Replace the shift plug and retaining clip and continue the same procedure on the other two shift plugs on the valve body.
6) To remove the actuator, place the ¼ in. bolt in the hole in the actuator and push in slightly to remove the retaining clip with the pliers.
7) Using a pick tool, gently remove the actuator from the valve body with the aid of the bolt as seen in the photo below.
8) Replace the existing actuator with the new Bully Dog one .Making sure the new O-Ring is in place on the actuator. Put the new actuator in the valve body and place the retaining clip back in place to hold the new part.
9) The valve body is now ready to be placed back in the truck. Clean the valve body thoroughly and place the valve body back in the truck and tighten the bolts to 8-10 ft-lb of torque and the 2 nuts the same.
10) Replace the pan and all the bolts and refill the transmission with Bully Dog Technologies Rapid Power ATF. Check for leaks and enjoy the power.

don't know about that one, but I did the transgo reprogrammer kit on mine and am very happy with it. Come with "alot" more parts, upgrades the pump too. kind of a pain to install though.

You may also want to consider the Sonnax/Tricumulator kit we sell. Bully dog buys the same parts and sell them for a whole lot more.
