An RV type shift kit is usually a mild design of shift modifications.

What is the mileage - age of this transmission?

It is not advisable to add a shift kit to an older or weak transmission

A TransGo kit;

200-4r HD2 kit will make that 200 trans hit good.

A larger servo for the band will help too. Couple of companies offer a 'super servo' set up for the 200 transmission.

I put a Trans-go shift kit, billet servo, 5500rpm shift governor, 0.500" boost valve, 3000 edge racing stall converter in mine. It shifts hard and fast. It chirps the tires on the 1-2 and 2-3 shift driving daily. When I get on the gas it will break loose easily in 1st, 2nd, and a few seconds in 3rd. Make sure you put an aftermarket tranny cooler on it. If your budget allows get a deep pan with cooling fins and preferably a drain plug and put in a 4l60e filter in it. It will position the filter lower so it will keep it submerged in fluid when you stomp it. This keeps your line pressure up. You dont want to drop line pressure when your pushing it hard.

Thats just my .02 cents. Even if the trans has miles on it I would recommend the shift kit and cooler. The slipping during slow stock-like shifting is hard on them and heats them up fast. Heat kills automatics. Also make sure you have the TV cable adjusted properly and if you're using an aftermarket carb get a TV correction kit from Bowtie overdrives for the carb you are using. I have one for my demon and it works great.
