    Is there any thing bad about Shift IMPROVER Kit? All I know is they shift hard and sposibally make the trannys job easer. Does the hard shift get annoying? I was looking at B&M's and they have 2 stage. Also how hard are they to install? Its going in a 700R4. BTW whats the difference between the regular shift kit and the complete Transkit?

    ok, adam (mudbogad) and i installed a stage 2 in his jimmy's th350, it was technical but not hard at all. (two 17yr old kids installed one in a driveway under a lifted k5) as for the shifts, it would kill me. adams not really happy with the stage 2 either. a stage 1 would have been awesome! i'm gonna put one in my suburban's th400. oh and it was a B&M shift improver kit. and yes they do make the the tranny's job easier.

    How hard you feel the shifting depends on you vehicle setup. If I stick some little 33's on, It barks the tires and moves the rig pretty well. When I go back to the 40's, It doesnt feel all that bad.

    I believe the shift kit comes with the new gaskets and plating to reroute the existinge fluid some in the stock transpack for a firmer shift. The transpack replaces the stock transpack and I believe, costs more. You should be fine with a regular shift kit.
