The shift kits are for improving shifts in an operating trans in the car. All that is required to install them is to drop the pan and valve body. The trans pak is used during rebuild and includes better clutches and bands and other crap that you can't get to by just dropping the pan.

WRONG!!!

The TransPak is the same as the shift kit with the addition of the plates required to enable you to have a manual shift as well as automatic. No internal parts (clutches, bands, etc.) are included. It can be installed with the trans still in the car. All you need to do is drop the pan and valve body the same as the shift improver kit. There are three different ways to install the TransPak. One is for race only. One is for street/competition which is what I used. One is for street/towing.

I like the results and the kit is easy to install. The only thing I didn't agree with in the instuctions was the torque specs for the valve body. The instructions said to torque the valve body bolts to 100 in.lb. which in my opinion is too loose. I went to 15 ft.lb.

Well, I stand corrected. I guess I was thinking of some other B&M product. I guess the transpak was what I was thinking was the shift improver kit. Oh well I guess I'm human after all.
