Re: Shift Kit
Yah people nowadays end up letting the tuner do most of the work on the auto slushboxes. But some guys who just like shifting the car all the time or hit the 1320 alot prefer the B&M's. Generally, if you don't overly abuse the transmission and know how to shift it the B&M, it should be fine for quite a few more miles.
If you're not relying on the car as a dd, I'd say go for it, so if the transmission does decide to give you problems (which is a broad area, there are so many possibilities these days with everything connected to the electronics), you could get it fixed or swap in another one. But if you are using the car to get to work each day, and don't have a second car, I'd tread carefully. How does your current transmission feel, does it slip at all, has the filter been changed out, does it leak anywhere (selector shaft, filler tube base or between the engine/transmission somewhere).
