I've seen pics of the b & m mega shifter in them but cant remember the site,sorry. I have the b&m transpak in mine and the torque management off using the vinci power tuner.The tranny shifts extremely firm with no hesitation. I like it! I have never operated a reverse valvebody but I believe the the gear operation is just backwards, someone will corect me if im wrong.

The computer can think faster than you can. Find a good tuner and have him set the trans up the way you want it to work.
A "reverse manual valve body" is something you don't want or need in a stock daily driver. It's usually set up for race only cars. It shifts backwards from the normal auto tranny pattern. You have to manually shift the trans to the gear you want. You have to down shift when slowing down as it won't back shift on its own. It will stay in whatever gear you put it in. If this is a dedicated "race only" vehicle then no problem. Otherwise, well it's your car, but I wouldn't do it to a daily driver.

when my car was a DD I had a 3200 stall converter with a Transgo shift kit in my auto and it shifted GREAT! Shifted hard and exactly where I would want it to if I were to shift it myself. Personally, i'd get the 4l60 pimped out a little bit first and see if that fixes the problem before you go and change shifters etc etc since you haven't really modded it yet. Ive heard negative things about manually shifting the 4l60 anyway. although i'm sure someone else knows more about that than i do. figured i'd throw it out there.
reverse manual is PRN123 instead of regular forward PRN321
