Either way OP do a jmod gears and some uca and lca with a decently sticky tire your 0-60 would be golden. And yes the programmer would be worth it

Not even at that level, the torque multiplication of a good aftermarket stall will make the auto come off the line like its got a Nitrous shot all the time every time. The car I have in my sig would lose to itself in a 1/4 race if it had a j-modded auto and a good stall and that is just fact.
I honestly don't see why anyone doubts you... You've led me in the right direction multiple times and haven't been wrong on anything I've read so far. There was a car down here in Georgia that was a cobra with 700 horsepower and had a powerglide and it ran a 9.3 at 145. My friend has a cobra with the stock 6 speed and 750 horsepower and it ran a 9.7 at 147... Doesn't take a genius to realize autos in a straight line are very hard to beat

+1 Scotty usually is right on the money from the stuff I've seen. Autos have it in a straight line if built properly. Still love my manual though haha.

Don't get me wrong I love mine but if I was building a drag car it would be auto. I wouldn't even have to think about that lol

Op. Either a tuner or jmod should be your next mod. I literally just walked in from driving my wife's 04 gt auto. Shifts slower than christmas. With a tuner you can change the shift pressure as well as shift points. It will be a much more enjoyable car.

Team that up with a set of gears and it will take a few months to wipe the grin off your face.

The j-mod doesn't require any of that, it mechanically quickens the shifts and adds performance/life to the transmission by enlarging passages in the valve body and removing a few springs that soften the shifts for NVH reasons deemed necessary by Ford.

Ugh...


This thread has me thinking of setting my 98 up for drag too... with a reverse manual valve body. Best of both worlds, all the advantages of an auto and control of a manual. Shifting consists of slapping the shifter and boom, neck snapped into the next gear instantly.

I know how a jmod works but most people aren't comfortable pulling an automatic transmission apart.

That's up to them, they're losing out bigtime, a tuner can only do so much when the fluid is restricted and those springs are still in there.

Agreed that the chips work but the j-mod is proven better and cheaper and if someone is comfortable doing the mod they really should do it. Unlike the chip it also improves transmission longevity and gear selection speeds.
