He meant TPC is better than SPV, keep your TPC.

Both can be upgraded to TPC or TPC+ I believe.

SPV is harsh riding at fast speeds, but is OK for drops.
Heh, thanks for the correction. The '04's are much more responsive to small bumps, the '03's of course where the best overall, I dont know why Manitou ditched the TPC+, I just hope that the new system for '06 on the Travis and Gold Label's are better.

Changing to TPC won't give you that extra inch of travel. That would involve a number of things, including a different spring. I'm not sure if there's enough stanchion/bushing overlap to give it that extra inch either.

TPC is much more responsive. TPC+ has a more progresive feel and prevents bottoming, because it uses 3 pistons, instead of 2, and it's position sensitive.

He meant he was going to upgrade to the 7 inch version and add TPC or TPC+
