Re: Shift Improver Kit and Torque Converter

A shift improver such as the j-mod or trans-go kits will extend the life of the tranny, reduce sloggy shifts, and firm them up. These improvements will result in better acceleration due to crisper, firmer shifts.

If I remember right, an aftermarket torque converter(stall converter) will help you reach the power band quicker. More peak torque equals better launches.
A modded sixer would probably benefit from one in the 2500-3000 range.

Someone with more experience with them could add to this.

Re: Shift Improver Kit and Torque Converter

his might help you with the converter The Right Stall: Tips On Selecting Torque Converters - SummitRacing.com

you can do a shift kit or J-mod or get a SCT X-Cal you raise the shift points for hard acceleration and make the shifts feel much firmer.
