Thumbs up Attn Melb ppl - E Series shift kits

Hi Guys,

Just letting you know there's a trans shop in Preston called Preston Automatics & Differentials who do a bad ass shift kit for Ford 4 speed LE series trans. I took an ED 5 litre for a quick spin the other day and let me tell you the thing was chirping into 3rd every time and once into 4th!! This car has done 20,000 hard klms since the shift kit was fitted and not a single prob as yet...highly recommended guys.

Lot's of trans places can do it, it's quite a simple upgrade. The 95LE 4-speed trans really comes to life with a little modding.

there's no extra stress placed on the transmission with these modifications? You'd think if the gears were jerking into position fast, there'd be more strain?

Also, what's the LE series of transmissions? My car's a May 95 build, does it have this type of transmission?

Do these kits work on tickford gearboxes, which are supposedly standard gearboxes, but the computer has been reprogrammed to shift harder..

How much do these kits go for?

Good question Yagz ... have been interested for awhile

If others are doing it, we'll get a group discount so keep intouch.
(Just what i needed for the drag meet coming up)

So yeah.. HOW MUCH FOR SHIFT KIT AND TRANNY COOLER?

I am also very interested in this, so if there is a few of us, i think a group discount could be in order. Also what do people think the price would be for a modification such as this?

been doing forum searching....

you can get a tranny cooler from ford parts for $135 and its apparently not that hard to fit yourself...
also the shift kit is approx. $300-400.

STILL... how much does the preston place charge?

With a shift kit you just take your valve body out and take it to them and they do what exactly?
