Default AOD Shift kit, which one?

Hey guys,
I've decided that my next mod is going to be a shift kit for my AOD. I know I'll have to pull the valve body and do some drilling, and I'm fine with it. Does anyone have any input on which one would be the best bang for the buck?

Thanks for the input.

B&M Transpak kits create new shifting characteristics by re-routing fluids through your transmission's valve body. Each kit includes two options: RV/Heavy Duty and Hi-Performance Street. RV/Heavy Duty is for towing, off-roading, or other heavy-duty use. You get firmer shifts and full manual control over downshifts, with normal automatic operation when in "drive." Hi-Performance Street gives you quicker, snappier shifts than RV/Heavy Duty, with standard shift points and automatic features when in "drive."

Is Tugger another name for Transgo or something? I google it and Transgo comes up.

an AOD is an outstanding powerful tranny
with adding a shift kit all you'll be doing is banging gears and spilling drinks
"its your money use it the when you need it"

think about a 'valve body kit' instead and save $$
