It’s no secret that the 68RFE’s Valve Body is a tragically low quality piece of equipment and is the foundation of nearly all of the unit’s failures. Our Bulletproof68 kit was designed to be the all-in-one solution; addressing all probable failure points. Before learning more about this product, you might enjoy our Transmissions 101 series, where we offer free educational resources on these transmissions and their inner workings.

Solenoid Switch Valve:
Other kits available on the market offer an upgraded separator plate, or paper gaskets, this is partially helpful but fails to resolve many of the main failures of the 68RFE, especially the Solenoid Switch Valve. The SSV is a massive failure point in the 68RFE and is actually where most crossleakage tends to occur, not just the separator plate. To resolve this, we offer a package of drop-in axially supported and precision machined end plugs that are designed not to wear the bore of the switch valve, and also not become stuck resulting in P0871 and overdrive clutch failure. This is an extreme upgrade in reliability that will save most 68RFE owners from overdrive failure completely in stock or close to stock applications.
Bonded Separator Plate:
Think of your separator plate as the head gasket of your transmission. It’s exposed to tremendous pressure and frequently begins to leak causing catastrophic failure. Our bonded plate is designed both thicker as well as with a paper gasket bonded to both sides to maximize sealing potential and negate this concern. This is also a single piece plate, rather than multiple paper gaskets that are to be laid together, providing ease and precision during install.
Accumulator Plate and Shim:
The Stock accumulator plate is notorious for cracking, causing a loss of line pressure to clutch packs when they need it most. This plate is stamped from high quality steel and uses a simple shin that drops in behind the OD accumulator piston to ensure superior regulation of line pressure at all times. We also include red loctite for the installation of the plate bolts.
Valve Body to Case Seals:
These are a common and greatly overlooked leak point, as a solution, we offer all 3 anew to prevent this concern in your build. They are very easy to install and the replacements provided in this product are true OEM replacements, not cheap imported alternatives that we have discovered are more prone to failure.
You can think of accumulator pistons as the shock absorbers of the Valve Body. They’re designed to help regulate pressure during clutch application. The factory units are hunks of plastic Chinese horse-shit that lead to catastrophic failure of the transmission along with abysmal shift quality. We proudly use precision machined custom pistons that were designed to divert fluid in a dramatically more efficient fashion, and have proven to be the best pistons on the market time and time again. These pistons are a change you can feel.
If you’re looking for a DIY solution to your 68RFE that does not require a transmission drop, tremendous shop labor costs or going broke, there’s is no better product than our Bulletproof68 kit. This bestselling product is easy to install, affordable and delivers huge improvements to the 68RFE at any mileage or rebuild.
