Too long, ain't gonna read (TLAGR); Opinions on B&M and Transgo basic shift kits, what kits and what stages did you use? Long and rambling version (LARV): I want my stock 283 powered T bucket to shift harder at full throttle, at least hard enough to chirp the tires, so I'm in the market for a basic shift kit, like the B&M Shift Improver kit or the TransGo . I know nothing about trannies, but I did have a B&M stage one kit in a stock 1971 Valiant with a 904 backing a stock 2 bbl 318 and something like 2:73 gears. The kit did exactly what I wanted it too, made it shift hard and chirp the tires at full throttle, while making the shifts efficiently firm feeling yet still comfortable when cruising. Since I was happy with that kit I could just get another one for the T and be done with it, but just about everything I read on the net says the TransGo is a better engineered kit. I'd probably get one of those, but I've also read that the TG shifts rather softly compared to the B&M, at least in stage one mode. I don't want it to shift too soft, I want this car to be a bit on the raucous side. What's your experience been? What stages did you use?
