Depends....

That sort of depends on what you want it to do. Racing? Hot street machine? Most kits come either in a stage one or stage two. The stage one is for heavy duty use, such as trucks and motorhomes, also works well on medium power street machines. Stage two is racing and high power only. So, what are you planning to do?

Buy a TransGo 350-1&2 kit

Shift kits are fun for 10 minutes. After that, they are just a pain, jerking your head back on every shift. I had a shift kit in a street car once. ONCE. Use a looser converter with it to ease the shift a little.

I have used TCI, B&M, and trans go, I even have a home built kit in my DD grand marquis, (by far the hardest shifting of any of them) and the trans go has the most comfortable shift, the B&M hits the hardest out of the store bought, chirps the tires on anything over half throttle, but the Trans Go isn't real intrusive until your on it hard. Depends on what you like. Tech isn't a fan of tire barking sillyness (but he's old ) while I love it to tear my face off at every shift....pic your poison.

(Make fun of my spelling eh Richard ) lol.....

So with a B&M if you drive it easy and keep the throttle less than half you won't have tire chirp on up-shifts?

Once the shift kit is installed can it be removed and the trans returned to stock condition?

Are there any other shift improvement options available?

My 70 LeMans is a mild street build with a 400, headers, 224\234 cam, 2300 rpm stall converter and stock th350. I am looking for a shift kit that will give tire chirp when driven hard but no chirp when driven easy. Sounds like the Trans Go is the one for me.
