Exclamation Automatic shifter help!!!!

I have an automatic 2000 V6 I was wondering if an automatic shifter will be the way to go in order to take away at least inpart the disadvantage with manual. If it does which one will you guys recomend? and how do they actually work. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

Re: Automatic shifter help!!!!

a chip or tuner will help your auto's shifting...i think a tranny cooler would also be good.

04stang has the x-cal 2 and i think it is great...others should be able to help you soon

Re: Automatic shifter help!!!!

a new shifter will do nothing to reduce automatic tranny parasitic loss.

shift kit
torque converter
rear gears
driveshaft
tranny cooler

Those will help

Re: Automatic shifter help!!!!

If you got a shift kit, torque converter, t-lok and gears you would probably eat most V-6's that are manuals

Re: Automatic shifter help!!!!

the best place to start would be with a tune and then go from there.

Re: Automatic shifter help!!!!

If you are going to drive your auto hard get a good auxillary tranny cooler.

What all is required in running a tranny cooler. I really really need to run one on my car as aggressive as my tune is.

Re: Automatic shifter help!!!!

It mounts in front of the radiator and connects in line after the stock cooler.
