just out of curiosity why would you want one?? from my experience the standard one is pretty good. My mate has a B&M and he likes my AU one...

you cant go up past drive and cant go down past 2nd... very practicle I think, but I would love to see the results you have fitting one!

Young gun a shift kit is a kit that replaces or modifies the valve body of an auto to make it shift later, harder, depending on the kit, mostly they are used to hold gears longer by maybe 200 - 1000 rpm, and to make the shift harder, almost to the point where you can get bark's from the rear tires.... Though that can be rather uncomfortable..... If you find a faster shift without the expense of comfort then its ideal.......

yeah I understand that, but cant you do that with the standard auto setup, changing gears individually, hence holding them in longer??
