    it shifts sooo hard

    my 2000 z shifts into 2nd at 50 and spins and slids sidways a little and going into therd at 90 it is like gettin a slap in the forehead

    auto tranny is built with b and m shift kit, line pressure tuned up on valve body, line pressure also tuned up in computer during tune and torque management deleted,

    i absolutly love it, anyone elso have this all done, just ordere some nitto555r to keep that 2nd gear spin down and acceloration up

    I agree--with a shift kit it is reccmnded to leave the base pressures at stock since you have to delete all of the TQ MGMT---Without a shift kit on a heavily modded car (my own C5) I had to actually bump up the TQ mgmt in 1st to keep it from blasting sideways at shift--very dangerous !!! and the speeds are now up there and if you hit any gravel or oil or a wet spot---you'll loop it faster than you can say--OH SHIT !!!!!!!!!
