The B&M kit is a good way to get a broken sprag IMO.

THe TransGo kit is a much better engineered kit. It is the only way to go on a TH400 for the DIY'er. It dual feeds the direct clutches which no other kit on the market does for the TH400.

You want a TransGo Reprogramming Kit. TH400-2

first trivia;

B&M does not offer shift kits. they are Shift correction packages, shift improvers, and other names are used.

TransGo has the term Shift kit trade marked

I have used B&M shifters, I have one in my current drag race car.

I will not use a B&M shift improver product... just my opinion.
