Guys,
Don't knock a guy because he's 19 years old....

His post may have come off as a bit "know it all" but he very well may have installed 100 shift kits. I had probably done 50 by that age....and rebuilt a handful of Th350 and 400's.

I was certified as an ASE Master Auto Tech by the age of 20 and at that time had been in the military as an infantryman for over 2 years.. So I had quite a bit of experience before I was even 18.

As Crosley stated, a torque wrench isn't a MUST on a Th350 with a cast iron VB.

The TransGo kit is better quality and it does differ.

My recommendation on the B&M is to leave the 2nd checkball in place and maybe go a bit less aggressive on the 1-2 feed hole. Other than that it can be made to work.

On a Th400, the TransGo Reprogramming kit is the only kit that dual feeds the direct clutches without internal mods....

Well worth the additional cost.
