Cool shift kit question

I was wondering what exact transmission my 03 auto mustang has because i am looking to get a shift kit. Is it worth getting one . Which would be the best. Also i am looking too get spark plug wires. I know there wont be a hp gain but are they worth it

That Jerry mod might be fine and dandy, but B&M and Transgo, and Superior, and these other companies that make shift kits know their stuff pretty darn good really they do. I have a B&M kit in my 99GT, works real good, the transmission man who installed it swears by them too.

like 100 bucks, but you acn do it your self if your the least bit mechanically inclined, just take off the oil pan, drain the fluid, take off the filter, then remove the valve body, then separate the two valve body pieces, you might have to drill a hole in the separator plate and replace some springs, then put every thing back on.
