    on my 700r4 is it possible to put a bigger gear on the governor to make it shift faster, it still seems to rev pretty high before shifting.

    Thanks

    first make sure you TV cable is adjusted correctly then deal with the gov. You can change the springs in the gov to change shift points

    the corvette servo is for the 700-r4 tranny it allows for more holding pressure on the 2-4 band. It causes a quicker harder shift into second. It is a very easy mod to do.

    I have a vette servo in my 97's 4L60E (wich is pretty much built like a JET tranny). It has a quick firm shift, but not overly harsh. Any time you have a smooth shift it basically means wear.. firmer shift = less wear. If the 700 in the 89 K5 goes... I'll probably do the same basic build to it.
