    Its not a good remedy when a tranny slips. When it slips, its because its worn. Nothing short of a rebuild will fix that. Depending on the kit (I consider trans-go to be top of the line, B&M bottom, due to the instructions and parts I have seen) installation will be moderately involved, taking apart some of the transmission. It can be done, and millions of people do it on their own.

    A shift kit will not help a slipping transmition. It only firms up the shifts and gets rid of the overlap. They are easy to install (just remove the pan,valve body, drill some holes bigger, and reinstall with the new parts)
