drove an 01 v6 auto today...

my previous impression from driving an auto was really bad, but this time it didn't seem as horrendous. the jerry spec and shift kit autos are pretty cool and would probably outshift my non powershifting butt.

on another note, i went to the store to get oil and filter for it (it's a friend's car, she needs an oil change!)... i had my shirt off and the steering wheel had the pink fuzzy thing that some girls have on it, and she had a britney spears song on, "toxic" (it's grown on me, i like it now, what can i say?!), and a truck with a couple of guys rolled up and pointed and laughed at me, i thought it was funny and laughed too.

I need a shift kit, I went up against a BMW the other night and the guy just whooped me. Damn quick german cars -__- the only way I can get away with trying to make my car shift quicker when I gun it is once it hits 5000 RPMs I take my foot off the gas for a split second and then hit it again and my car just keeps roaring along. Otherwise when it hits 5000 RPMs it goes alittle above the 5000 RPM mark making the car sound loud with the roar but once it automatically changes to the next gear it feels like I've slowed down some. I hope this is making sense lol

yeah, from the few BMW's i've driven, they are good performing automatics. i have driven tons of MBenz's and can safely say their autos suck for what you pay. you'd think they'd shift harder, but i am guessing most older folks that can afford them and many women want a nice smooth shift and not a fast, hard one. i am impressed with GM autos, or at least fbod A4's.

Who makes the best shift kit or a 99 V6? And how much would it cost -- also, what does the install involve? I'm getting interested...

Ok... I'll look for prices... how do I install it? And I'm guessing a tranny cooler would be recommended alogn with a shift kit?

Actually all automatics should come with a remote tranny cooler. can save you a bunch of money and prevent tranny problems

all automatics have a tranny cooler in the radiator. people just get an aftermarket one to rig up after the factory one. this further cools the tranny fluid.


shahrum - just look for the B&M or superior that is for either AODE or 4R70W. both are the right one.


austin - i know how to drive manual already punk. took me 2 days foo'

DUUHHH But the factory one is insufficient for Modded performance cars especially in hot climate areas

Damn !!!! Actually had manuals for all my life and even though I miss shifting sometimes, I enjoy the freedom my right hand and left foot have not working so hard in traffic

How do you install a) a tranny cooler and b) a shift kit? And does a shift kit accomplish what is referred to as "modifying shift points" that aftermarket computer chips such as SuperChip do?

Hey Shahrum, I have the B&M kit that you need. I bought it thinking it would work with my tranny, but they made a minor differance I think in 2000 so it wouldn't work with my car, It was installed but never used. Ill look over the kit tomorrow and make sure it has everything you need, but If you want to pay shipping its yours.

So basically... the shift kit and what the computer does by "adjusting points" are different things? You really need both for max potential.. but the shift kit is a start I guess?

yeah, the shift kit firms up and quickens the time between shifts. The actual shift points are controlled by the PCM. so with just the shift kit it will shift at the same time as normal, but won't slip as much. And you will have a PM in a few mins.

the chip also electronically controls how much fluid is put into each shift.

So think of it as a multiplyer. Shiftkit physically allows more fluid in, chip electronicaly lets more in, so you get a LOT firmer shifting when you do both

Well I was planning on getting a superchip burnt when I do the supercharger... but I was just wondering if the superchip defeated the purpose of this... but now from what you've said, I understand that it really requires both to get the intended benefit. Kinda like a CAI. You'd really need your air levels readjusted via the chip to get your max benefit out of having it.

a chip wouldn't do much regarding a CAI.

tunes/chips only do so much. They mainly add/take away fuel at given rpm, same for timing, adjust sensors, adjust parameters of an auto tranny(shift points, firmness, etc).

If you have a CAI, you'd techincally only benefit from it if you have an engine that moves a lot of air, and would outflow the stock airbox.
