If everything is in good working order, then the "modified" TransGo Performance Shift kit is the way to go to improve durability. It offers smooth part throttle shifts, and firm WOT shifts.
    I just picked up my TransGo kit but what do you mean by the "modified" TransGo Performance Shift kit? Did i get the wrong one of something?

    TransGo is THE way to go for shift kits, period. None of the other shift kits on the market are as effective and in many cases they can actually hurt your transmission. The automatic transmission is a very complicated piece of hydraulic machinery. Clutch/band applies and releases must be timed exactly right or the result will be harsh, clunky shifts and/or premature friction wear. TransGo seems to be the only company that actually takes time to study, research, and get these details right rather than just making a few quick easy changes to firm up the shifts and calling it good.

    Not affiliated with TransGo in any way. I do build transmissions though and I have done my research on shift kits.

    Yeah it's a nice kit. Definitely got rid of the slow shifting...it's much more crisp now. The shift from 1-2 is almost instintaneous and it gets more aggressive with how much throttle you give it. I would recommend it for anyone who has an auto trans!
