E - series shift kits

Hi,

Just letting you know that if anyone is interested in rebuilding their auto transmission in e - series falcons that my cousin has a workshop called Precision Automatics in Fairy Meadow [near Wollongong]. He has done a few E-series boxes, which include harder shift kits, installation of adjustable solenoids and hi-stalls to suit. All at a very good price. He recently did my brothers auto in his EL 5.0 Fairmont Ghia and made a huge improvement, he also installed a daiken clutch and rebuilt my manual box in my ELXR8.

He also deals with any other type of auto transmissions and manuals. Including manual shift kits for C4's, etc.

He lives in Sydney so if you also live in Sydney and interested don't hesitate to call him.

Give him a call or maybe go to his workshop and have a chat to him, he would be more than happy to chat about anything or answer any questions you have.

His name is Gary

mob: 0411236692

address: Unit 2/ 88-92 Jardine St. Fairy Meadow

6pAc, I had a problem with the trimatic in my Calais when I had it. I called up Dinkum Automatics at Everton Hills and they diagnosed the problem over the phone. I was astonished at their expertise. This was some number of years ago but they still exist, I just looked them up. I'm getting rough shifts (no flaring though) in my car so I thought I'd go get her serviced.

I'm interested in a shift-kit whilst Im at it. Would someone explain exactly what they consist of, the different types and how much additional punishment it allows the transmission to tolerate?

If anyone can recommend other auto places around Brisbane I'll consider them also.

after some more reading it sort of appears that shift kits dont exist for falcons or it is far simpler to use the adjustable s5 solinoid from an au and up the line pressure and get a trannie cooler...

anyone please feel free to correct me as i personally dont have a clue....
