Get the plate if you can. $20can is worth the money. 2 reasons:
1. No need to drill/plug any holes
2. Where the 1-2 / 3-4 accumulator springs seat on the plate, they wear that plate area out over time and could eventually break through if you end up getting the super firm shift springs in that kit.
You still need to drill & block the holes in the Trans-Go VB plate. What torque converter are you going to run? If you want smooth part throttle 1-2 shifts, & firm WOT shifts with this kit, you can do this, with a couple of additional parts for the accumulator. Let me know if I can be of help?
