Electonic? If your gonna do that then just get a programmer, that you can do the same thing it will do, and so much more.

Its been my experience that electric shift kits are actually bad for your transmission. Like it was said, just get a chip, or an alternate shift kit.

Basically all an electronic prgrammer will do is change something with your tranny fluid, and that will make it shift harder. Ive never really heard anything bad about it, because I know that better shifts means less slippage. Now, the programmer will basically do the same thing, but you will also get to adjust other things performance or maintenance wise.

Id give anything if mine was a stick

I agree , but if your drag racing nothing is faster than a 2 speed powerglide or a real built C-4 with a trans brake , now for the street ...... 5 or 6 speed all the way !

Yeah, even though you can build an automatic to be faster, Id still prefer a manual, just for the fun factor.

After you spend a few years in a truck, shifting all day, you appreciate an automatic more.
I like mine, but it needs some modifications.

They both have they're pro's and cons.
A properly calibrated automatic will beat a stick anyday.
dumping the clutch is also fun, and u just cant do that with a slushie... :'(

I'd stay away from the cheaper shift kits.
they can spike line pressure, and cause too much heat.
There is a mod you can do called the J-mod to firm up the shifts, that requires no parts.
you'd have to search for it.

For serious performance, Lentech is the only way to go.
I have they're valve body, and a staul on the way once i'm done with engine mods.

Yea electronic shift kits raise line pressure and actually put a lot more stress on the tranny.

The J-Mod is found at Tccoa.org, a very worthwhile mod, but you need some automotive skill.

Thats the link for the J-mod, which I also suggest.


Everyone with an auto should read the articles on that website!!!! Its like the auto bible :angel:
I'd rather have my Auto then any of Fords crappy built 5-speeds. It can handle more HP and will last longer if properly cooled.

Maybe so ................but it will never be as fun to drive as a 5 or 6 speed on the street ! :hammer:

Spoken like someone who has never driven an automatic that's built correctly.

It is opinion though, eveyone has they're preferance.

eh you can up/down shift a built auto...but if I did ditch the auto it would only be for a D&D Viper Spec 6 Speed.
