Shift kit takes longer to install while the valve body is just a swapping the stock one out

Oh okay and is the stock valve body good to install a shift kit on a stock v6 3.8 ? Or its better to get the valve body with the shiftkit installed already ?

Either is fine if you got the money a valve body is so much easier if you don't have much money I would do a jmod that what I did an it makes even a stock mustang better I love my v6 auto so much better and I notice the difference

Do a search for jmod and you will see we talked about it before it's easy to do I did it by myself but if you want the easy way do the valve body. Also a trans cooler will help your trans last longer, trust me these mods will make your car more fun

When i went to shop they wanted 200 I think it's about three to four hours. I won't pay more then 300 for labor. Helps with both firms up the shift and helps with keeping up with future mods
