Do Shift Kits make a transmission shift hard?

No they do not.

TransGo ‘Shift Kits’ are engineered to correct rough shifts and to correct other shift malfunctions that can reduce transmission longevity and durability.

You may notice a more progressive shift feel after a shift kit has been installed. Progressive, meaning the shift becomes firmer in relation to throttle as it should for maximum durability.  Shift feel will also depend on a wide number of other factors such as;

  • Vehicle weight
  • Tire diameter
  • Differential ratio
  • Engine torque
  • Converter stall speed
