i just installed a b&m transpack in my car and am really impressed with it. my trans is a th350c in a 76 el camino with a sbc400. you can choose between going with a heavy duty or street/strip set up with the kit. i went with the street/strip. the 1-2 shift is wicked. just cruising around it gives a nice firm shift and the 2-3 shift is smooth as butter. once you punch it though 1-2 shift just about gives you whip lash and barks the tires. the 2-3 shift is still smooth when your on it and shifts quick but with out the harshness. ive been really impressed with this kit. it cost me about $68 but since it was for the th350c it was one of the more expensive ones. ive also tried a transgo no yo-yo in this car but it just made shifts smoother and not harder.

im sure b&m makes one for a th400. transgo does offer kits that shift hard, but from what ive looked at their sort of expensive and you have to shift the trans into every gear behind. you cant just put it in drive and go. ive never tried one, but the no yo yo didnt impress me. but thats just me

For the $$$ the B&M Transpak is the way to go. TransGo is also very nice but is a fair amount more $$$. I have used plenty of the B&M Transpak kits and have had no problems with it, in both the TH350 and TH400. Use the Street/Strip set up and give your tires a good spankin

TransGo offers kits that provide full manual (ONLY) shifts or automatic/manual.

With the auto/manual kit , you can down shift to a lower gear at any road speed.

Full manual shifts is just that.... any gear you put the shifter in , the tranny stays in that gear till the shifter is moved

camino man or others

How is the no-yo-yo kit different than other kits?
I have an '87 Olds Cutlass cierra 2.5 liter for which I want to firm up the shifts. I have seen that the no yo-yo kit is available.
Is there a safe way to firm up the shifts without damaging it?
Can I increase the line pressure to firm up and quicken the shifts?
thanks.

when you say 'no yo yo' you are refering to only 1 item of the TransGo line of kits. Usually refers to their pump ring kits for the vane type pumps used in various GM trannys.

your car should have a t-125 trans axle. there is a SK 125 kit availible from TransGo or their distributors

the "no yo yo" is the only product from transgo that ive tried, but i know theres other ones. but the "no yo yo" only makes shifts smoother and not firmer. the instructions state that clearly, if you want harder shifts from a trango product you have to buy something other than the no yo yo.
