shift kits, b&m vs transgo?

What is the difference between transgo shift kit and b&m Transpak? is it quality of parts, or research that went into the kits? or is it the shift firmess that you get out of either

any help would be wonderful

This will be for a Ford 74 c6 transmission if that will help anyone, or if anyone has experince with either kit for this trans

Cool

I've used the TransGo shift kits for decades. Follow the instructions.

...every tranny guy i ever talked too said trans-go was the best to go with..but i've had 3 different tranny's with the trans-go shift kit and all 3 would shift a split second after you hit the shifter..i didnt like that at all.. i also had 2 tranny's one with the ceap kit in it and one with the transpack and they both shifted as soon as i touched the shifter..they all held up well...

It depends on what trans it is for.
I have found that the Trans go is the best for the 700R4/4L60E.

But for the TH350/TH400 I like the B&M and TCI.

The C6 seems to like the trans go.

I guess the point should be made here is;

TransGo's primary function is to correct operating defects in trannys.

TransGo also offers performance shift kits for many trannys.

B&M and other shift calibration kits focus mainly on performance shifts(firmer)

Yeah, The trans-Go reprogramming kit as stated before actually beefs up performance and defects or problematic areas of the trans. They are better suited for you if you are overhauling the trans and have some knowledge as to what you are doing.

The B&M Kits are good for in car service, They are easy to install and work well as far as nice firm shifts in most cases.

So if you are rebuilding, use the trans-Go and if you are just looking for an easy to install shift kit, go with B&M

PS I just put a Trans Go in a 400. Nice kit
