shift kits?


Apr 23, 2023
Any recommendations or advice? Never installed one but used to build engines so I can figure it out. The 2 I know of are Trans-Go and B&M. Any others? Any that I should avoid or should get? Any tips? Basically Looks like B&M has 2 stages. Should I avoid stage 2? or possibly stage 1? I have had shift kits and manual valve bodies in previous cars but trans shops built those.

For reference: Have a 1995 GT all stock. As of now my plans are shift kit then over winter maybe 3.73s (have 3.27's now) and MAYBE a slight convertor upgrade. After all that I MAY possibly go with either GT40 heads and intake or aftermarket heads with GT40 intake but those would be down the road another year or so. And if I go that far I may toss a cam in but I don't want to go over about 300 HP. Don't want to affect driveability, reliability or any computer crap so cam may stay stock because of that.

I've heard good things about the bauman shift kitsch. I've got one it was 60 bucks. I was intimidated with taking apart the vb so I bought the performance automatic street/strip valve body and installed that along with the transgo hirev governer kit. With 4.10 gears my cars wot shifts in drive are both at 5500 rpm. That paired with a edge 3500-3800 nonlockup stall made my car feel like a totally different ride!
