This would be better in the transmission/rear end forum, however I'll give you my .02.

IMHO, the shift kit would be the better route. They all will come with detailed insructions, and new gaskets, revise seperator plates, and an oil redirection upgrade. Here, the B&M kit is less than $60 CDN, so I think it's kind of a no brainer.

Drill the holes as in the last pictures. Take out all the check balls other than the ball that feeds the vacume mod. valve. Remove every third or fourth spring from the cluth packs and replace the wave rings with a regular clutch steel. Either beef up the spring under the side cover on the pass. side of the trans with a higher pressure spring. I think that the high pressure spring will have an orange stripe on it. You can remove the spring all together and replace it with an aluminum bar of the same diameter as the spring cut to not alow the piston behind the sping to move. Keep in mind freezing that piston will give you a very hard shift.

Removing the return springs in the clutch packs is a bad idea..

That can lead to the clutch pack applying at high RPM from centrifugal force of residual oil behind the piston in a spinning drum.
