Does a SHIFT KIT® make a transmission shift hard?

No they do not. TransGo SHIFT KIT® valve body repair kits are engineered to correct rough shifts and other malfunctions that can reduce transmission longevity and durability. You may notice a more ‘progressive’ shift feel after a TransGo 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
