    Today I installed B&M's shift improver kit (part # 70383). What a waste of my time, there was NO noticeabel difference. Essentially the kit contains, a T fitting, some vacum line, and a valve. All it does is allow air in the line before the vacum line to the trans, making the trans think it has less vacum than is really present. For $50, I could punch a hole in the vacum line myself. Anyone else ever try this product?

    ditto. the only thing is the module gets really warm. I'm gonna glue a cpu heatsink to each side to help keep it cool.

    Yeah, the electronic version is great. It feels like its gonna break something it shifts so fast/hard on setting 2.
