Re: Shift Kits....

Do a search on them... theres plenty of previous threads on them. i forget who sells them is it Mongrel EB??? Basically they plug in and change the pressure to the S5 Solenoid in the tranny and makes it shift harder... enough to chirp them easily... not sure on auto damage but i hear theyre pretty safe, auto trans cooler also helps a long way as heat is the main killer of autos.

Re: Shift Kits....

Its 9 psi EB that does them.
I just received mine yesterday but I havent put it in yet. It is very well put together by the looks of things.

Re: Shift Kits....

Mine was $111 delivered, It is the 2 switch type.
One switch turns it on and off and the other switch switches between firm and hard shifts.

There is others that are like $50 I think check out mechanical forums, 9 psi EB's homepage, there is a thread on all the types and how much they cost.

Cheers
Dan

Re: Shift Kits....

these kits are electronic (inexpensive) and cost me about 15 bucks to do myself. We had a few issues installing with the EF, but i worked out you need more resistance than other fords in the EF ECU.

I've have a switchable version in for over a year and have had no problems what so ever. 1st to 2nd gear change around a corner will get you sideways over 2 lanes. The shift seems the hardest between 3000-4000revs. Don't expect your quartermile time to drop though because you don't feel a hardshift (on a safe resistance, with the electronic kit) when your changing gears on the limit.

Re: Shift Kits....

Chubbz, do you have any details of resistances and pins you used? i am more than capable of making one up given the right info. any advice you can give would be awesome. $110 for some resistors, switches, a jiffy box and some paper seems a bit rich...

Cheers
