C4 reverse manual valve body

In the market for a reverse manual valve body for a C4. Been looking at a few different ones such as ArtCarr, Broader, TCI ect. Anybody have an opinion/experience on any of these or other brands? Also I see and option for first gear engine braking, how well does that work and is it worth the extra $$?

Some manual valve bodies just use the one-way sprag, and no clutch, for first gear. It will free wheel like neutral when coasting in first. That's fine if you're drag racing, but for street or wheeling you want it engaged, so get the engine braking option.

I have the broader performance full manual reverse with 1st gear compression braking in my C5. Worth every penny.

I have the TCI with OUT compression in first, I don't really notice the lack of braking.

I can strongly recommend Broader.

As far as 1st gear compression braking being worth it, depends on how you use your vehicle. In most cases I'd say its worth the extra coin, though.

I ran one from JPT (Jims performance transmissions) in my C-4 for a few years and really liked it, it had the engine braking, I think JPT is now BPT(Brians performance transmissions) now.
