V6 automatic shift kits

I was in my friends 2000 mustang and he floored it and it shifted really well better than mine and I asked him what he done to it he said he just put a new shift kit in it..is that all you really need to do to get better shifts other than getting a tuner

A tuner will tell the car to shift early but a shift kit will allow more fluid so it can shift earlier

Yeah worth it and if you do both shift will be amazing remember adding a tranny cooler will help the car last longer

Re: V6 automatic shift kits

I would go with a tuner to firm up the shifts and modify the shift points. Installing a shift kit into the transmission is risky and can lead to complications if not done right or if the kit is not good enough quality.

That and firm down shifts are annoying in a DD

But if you shift earlier less time for the the tranny to be working hard. Shift kits are great for auto.

Wow I never considered how a shift kit would affect the down shifts as well. Good point!

You need to find someone who has one in a car like yours, and see what they like and dislike
