cool Quicker shifting BTR

Just wondering if their is any tricks to get my EB 4 Spd Auto reaching 4th gear sooner. It was serviced not long ago and it's working o.k but i'd like it to be quicker so i'm using the low end torque 1500-2000rpm, a.s.a.p.
A shift kit might help a bit but i'm thinking that's not the area that needs improvement. It's gotta be something more to do with the trans controller ie; Speed/Rpms/Load etc???
If this is correct there's prob not much that can be done!!! I might just have to try a shift kit...

Yeah the trans is programed to shift at certain load and speed points. IMO you really don't want to be using 4th for pulling power, it is overdrive and really is only there for cruising, not acceleration. To make the car quicker you need a shift kit, this will quicken the shift time up and allow the engine to rev out more. One of the best cheap mods an auto owner can do.

Re: Quicker shifting BTR

The only other way to make it go through the gears quicker is by changing the speedo drive gear, but this will cause your speedo to be out.
Also by doing this, you are making the torque converter slip more (high gear, low road speed) which will cause a lot of heat and can result in premature failure of the auto trans.
