Should I buy this if I'm getting a tuner? Would they pair better together?

  • Not if you aren't really experienced with transmissions. if you're gonna do anything buy a pre-assembled valve body.

    Well before this install my mustang wouldnt shift right. when shifting from 2nd to 3rd it wouldnt keep reving untill i would let go off the gas then it would shift hard. so i heard that it might be the valve body gaskets so i ordered this installed it and... oh man does shift way firmer now. no lag it shifts how it suppose to. FYI it took me bout 9 quarts of mercon V oil to fill

    SOLID SHIFTS

    for now I've decided to stick the my auto tranny for my build and to throw in this kit just to see what it could do.... the slipping factory shifts were really irritating and with this kit there was nothing but solid hard shifts. will for sure buy this kit when I upgrade but for all the stock trannys its a must as well thanks AM!!!1

    Performance automatic shift kit

    This product is great...I didn't do the install myself but I tell u... The car shifts like it should now....1 to 2 shift is really firm...and 2 to 3 when u step on it really shifts firm also!... The shop put new fluid in and it took about 1/2 the day for the install...but I really love this product...I would recommend this product to all automatic mustang owners to make ur mustang a mobb stang!

    shift kit

    My GT now chirps the tires when shifting from 1st to 2nd, and even goes sideways a little bit depending on how much gas i have my foot on. I had a guy put this in for me and he works at a racing shop so i cant tell you how hard or easy to install it. he only charged me 75 dollars so it might not be that bad. im loving the no hesitation between shifts, this is a must buy for the sloppy shifting factory transmission.

    big bang!!

    Paired this kit with the 4.10 gears and 93 octane, and all I can say is "who in the hecks car is this?" The car no longer sluggishly searches for gears and shifts, its always a right away catch. 1st gear and 2nd gear at wot, breaks my tires aloose everytime and my car is on 20" rims. Be warned that if you mistakenly take out the overdrive piston like I did, you have to reseat the od band, if not then you won't have overdrive, the car will just go into neutral instead, I used a cai clamp bent folksy up on the overdrive band while I pushed the piston back in with a jack. Other than that everything went smooth, also you can drop the valve body by just taking out all of the 8mm bolts and leaving the 10mm in place, will make things a lot easier. But overall for the price, this is the second best mod to be done on a v6.

    Wake up your auto trans

    This shift kit paired with some 4:10 gears and it turns my GT into a torque monster. Love the new acceleration and kick back.

    shift kit

    the shift kit works great and made my car a lot more fun to drive.that being said the instruction sheet could have been a little more clear. I got it together but had to get help from a transmission guy.

    PERFORMANCE AUTOMATIC STREET/STRIP SHIFT KIT (96-00 GT, V6)

    I work at a small used car store and we have a full time tech. With some interruptions it took him 2.5 -3.0 hours. He had done other kits before but never on a Mustang. He had no problems with the installation. The performance difference is amazing. The kit is paired with a 3.73 gear. The shifts are firm even at "normal" acceleration and when I get on it the tires will chirp in 3rd gear. My "Stang" also sports a 78 mm throttle body and plenum, under pulleys, and a cold air intake. This latest upgrade really woke up my pony. Thanks AmericanMuscle for another quality upgrade..
