Transgo shift kit
It took awhile to find a tranny shop that would do the work. It cost $386 for labor, fluid, filter and gaskets. The shop told me they were very impressed with the outcome. After driving around, I noticed the the very firm shifts. I turned down 5 shift pressure on 1-2 shift using my x4 tuner and now its perfect. The reason I turned it down is because it shift so hard withy current tune, even with light throttle. Now it burns rubber from takeoff and when shifting into 2nd gear! I'm glad I bought this.Helpful (1)

Recommend for an Automatic
If you have an Automatic mustang than you know what a pig these cars are stock and how sloppy the shifts are. After leaving my friends at Transmission King in Plantation, Fl I took it for a spin and light on the throttle you couldn't tell any modification was done to the car. However, you can feel an improvement in the shifts. From a dead stop when I floored the gas pedal this thing burned the back tires real nice and will nicely snap your neck from first to second !!! Now all my car needs is a good converter and trans cooler which I'll upgrade with the mishimoto cooler w/ fan that AM sells. A nice overhaul would benefit the transmission as well, upgrading things that are known to be weak such as the forward drums, the overdrive band, extra clutches/frictions and the tailshaft lubrication mod to help put the power to the ground with some good old 4.10s in the back followed by a lighter aluminum driveshaft to reduce weight on the rotational mass :-) with some weight reduction, drag radicals, suspension upgrade and some 04" cobra front brakes for stopping power with basic bolt one such as Intake, mass air-flow meter, throttle-plenum, steeda UDPs, and a good exhaust combination on a custom tune with adjusted shift points this car is capable of being a daily driver on pump gas with the possibility of having a tune for 87 octane and one for premium unleaded running high 12s/low 13s all motor!Helpful (6)

Everything in the kit made a difference towards my auto tranny. Shifts hard and chirps the tires from 1st-2nd gear. Instructions could be more specific but after finishing you could help anyone with no problem. Also I notice that it takes more wear off of tranny and runs smoothly and the acceleration was a little faster. This is what should be on all transmissions. Highly recommend this.Helpful (7)
difference betwwn Shift Kit and Valve Body? What is the difference between Performance Automatic Street/Strip Shift Kit (96-00 GT, V6) and Performance Automatic Street/Strip Valve Body - Auto (96-00 GT, V6)?
The shift kit is the valve body gaskets and springs and the valve body kit is the valve body itself for your trans.
Does this come with good instructions?
Yes, helpful instructions are included with the product.
Is this a whole kit to upgrade the transmission shifts or will I have to buy more parts
This kit includes everything that you would need. it Includes 7 springs and 3 valve body plates.
How do I install this thing I have no idea
Installing the Performance Automatic Street/Strip Automatic Transmisson Shift Kit requires partial disassembly of the valve body in your transmission. A strong knowledge of transmissions is recommended to install this kit.
I already have a bama custom tune installed. If I purchase and install this shift kit, will I have to get another custom tune sent? Or will it not effect it?
The Performance Automatic Street/Strip Shift Kit does not require a tune, however you may want to have your tuner adjust the shift pressures to avoid shifts that may be too hard for daily driving comfort with the tune's trans program and the shift kit combined.
The Performance Automatic Street/Strip Shift Kit will include the 3 valve body plates and 7 springs pictured, so you will just need to buy this kit for it to work.
The Performance Automatic Street/Strip Shift Kit is giving you the same benefits as the J-Mod. I personally prefer the J-Mod myself but this will be a good upgrade if you did not want to alter your factory transmission parts yourself. I will put a link below to an article written up by one of our Mustang experts about the J-Mod. http://www.americanmuscle.com/what-is-a-j-mod.html
Not if you aren't really experienced with transmissions. if you're gonna do anything buy a pre-assembled valve body.
