you do know the C6 governor is completely different design than a t-400?

I've never seen a recal kit for a C6

I have modified them

if you want earlier shifts, add weight.

later shifts take weight off.

You can also adjust shift timing under light throttle via the vacuum modulator 2 methods :

Usual method of adjustable pre-load on spring inside via the hose nipple. Screw inside this nipple. Crank in ( clockwise) to increase tension = later shift

Also , the pin between the modulator and the valve inside the trans.... longer pin = later , firmer shifts. Shorter pin = softer , earlier shifts. Change length no more than 1/16 inch at a time for testing

When i adjusted the shift points in my th400 it was trial and error with different weights and springs which were easily accessible on the side of the trans. From everything i have read and been told the Governor on the c6 is on the tail shaft of the trans. The c6 im working on is in a bronco with a transfer case bolted to the back of it. Is there no way to access the Governor with out unbolting the transfer case? or do i have to unbolt the trans and transfer case every time i want to make an adjustment? seems like a real pain considering it might take a couple tries to get it to shift where i want.
