    Ya\'ll with shift kits....

    .. what kind of shift kit should I get for my 700R4? I already have a B&M light truck megashifter waiting to go in, but I want a shift kit in beforehand. I was looking at the Jeg's site. They have a few "kits", but I dunno if they are for manual shifting. I need some suggestions!

    I just had my 700r rebuilt ($1600....oooocccchhhhh!!!)and all they did for shifting was put in a Corvette servo and a 7 disk clutch kit. It shifts awsome and pulls well, too.

    I did the exact same thing to my 700r4, the servo and clutches and when I get on it it shifts HARD!! I am very happy wth the over perfomance with mine. DONT FORGET THE COOLER!!!! Keeping the tranny cool is so very important. I also sugest a temp gauge for the tranny. Heat is the number one tranny killer. HAVE A NICE DAY!!!

    The cooler IS very important!!! Today I installed a B&M cooler that is rated for 28000 GVW. (Summit part no.BMM-70266) It cost around $65.00 to the my door. I ran it through the radiator and cooler. I don't think I'll have a over heating problem with the trans!!!

    So, all I need is a vette servo, clutch disks, and a tranny cooler, and I can shift my tranny manually with an auto shifter? sounds kinda too easy.
