They're like $1,200 or something I think..
I used URO parts and believe me there is nothing wrong with it, ppl get problems with the plate after the pipe.
URO parts is pretty good pipe and URO has been around for years unlike aga and other blah blah overpriced pipes. 200$ is a good price for 2 pieces if brushed aluminum with orings, but not 500-700$!
Have you done mechatronik adapter yet?? If not then fluid change does nothing almost, replace that gasket adapter and your tranny will be back to life.
And yes valley pan and rear cover are way more important than coolant pipe. After I replaced my vp, I noticed that pressure is much better now, but still not there.
No, there is nothing wrong with your TC, just mechatronik adapter... Check willson DIY and you'll be fine!!! If you wanna perfect shifting back you need new solenoid pack or complete valve body
