Hi, these forums have been a wealth of info to me since buying a ford earlier this year.
Ive been told my auto is in desperate need of a full service, it still changes nice etc but give it a 2-3 min thrash (rev to 4500-5200 before next allowing next gear change) and it gets hot enough to smell the oil when u park the car and hop out.
Ive been quoted 550 for a full service, inc swaping belts.
Now Ive been in the process of hotting up my na I6 a bit and would like to spend some $ on the gearbox since it will be getting a full service soon.
I understand a shiftkit will make for nice sharp changes, improving the overall responsiveness. Do I use a taxi 1 or is there a certain brand that is better than others. Could some1 give me a rough idea to the price on a shift kit to please, I live in WA.
my car starts to produce a nice amount of power at 3000 rpm, the stall converter seems to kick in between 1500-1700rpm. I would like to have it kick in a bit higher (2500) would prolly be nice, is there a cheap way to do this or am I looking at spending $400 upwards on a high stall converter.
Lastly is there anything else that would shine from a little attention while the rest of the transmission internals are getting done.
