Anyone have a transgo shift kit or installed one? Is it difficult to install, is it worth it? Thanks for any help. :smokin: :smokin:
Depends on the model of the trans. I watched the mechanic do mine today and there were so many freakin parts it was unbelievable. I am a decent shade tree mechanic and after today, I have a whole new appreciation for trans mechanics! Even after watching I wouldnt try it. If you get the Transco Jr. shift kit, it will shift better and help your trany last longer.had enuf said:Anyone have a transgo shift kit or installed one? Is it difficult to install, is it worth it?

FYI...Transco makes a shift (kit) and a shift (improver). The kit can hit pretty hard, the improver it not as hard and will help the tranny last longer and wont tear up the rear end.2002DakotaRT said:I just had the valve body replaced under warrantee and it shifts perfectly now. My mechanic said that shift kits are tough on the rear end gears.
That kit will hit pretty hard unlike the Transco Jr. Shift Improver. I would call APS and talk with him about it. Trust me on this...rogerz said:The rev limitter is with out a doubt the valve body. They said that the TV adjustment should never move by itself. The rear ends in this truck are built mussle cars so the kits should not be that bad for it right? This is the kit I was looking at. Thoughts?
You can buy the Transco Jr. shift improver for about $50-$60 and the other 2 parts I was talking about for $110 for both. I'm not sure if APS sells the Jr. kit but wouldnt hurt to ask.rogerz said:I don't mind talking to the pros. Really I don't, but it's $$$$. I did talk with someone at APS and was getting into spending 400.00 insted os 100.00 for a transgo. The wife will kill me! I guess i have to look into this deeper before I just buy that kit? Till then I'll be fighting with myself! :argue:
