    Your computer can shift better than you. Unless modded, it knows the best RPM to shift at.

    It is very rare that manual shifting will net lower ET's.

    get a transgo shift kit and be done, it will make for a quick and accurate shift, do not get the b and m , it is old technology, what it does is remove the accumulator springs which is a no no on an already fragile 4l60e and bumps up line pressure, now the transgo does allot with valve body springs and shortings the shift duration, i had HAD the b and m until it broke the output shaft in the tranny fron hard shifts from removing the accumulator springs

    b and m $30
    transgo $100

    ..........theres a reason you get what you pay for, and if you do not beleive me then call a tranny tech from performabuilt or pro built automatics and they will tell you they never install a b and m

    just put some 4.10 gears in it, its one of the best things you can do, the gas mileage doesnt change that much and it can still be a daily driver, that what i have in my car and i love them. dont shift your car manually either, just keep it in dive and it will do just fine. But a shift kit, stall and gears your car will run good.
