shift kit and reprogramming kit is the same thing. The shift kit basically reprograms the shift pattern of the transmission by redirecting the flow of fluid with the use of a pattern, springs and a ball bearings. Some guys swear by shift kits and most transmission builders claim they are a waste of money and a transmission can be built to run better than with a shift kit. Trans Go is well known and one of the best kits available. B&M is another option. I'm not running a shift kit in my C4 transmission and it hits pretty hard without it. I have run them in the past and it will definitely make the tranny hit harder and crisper on shifts. You can even program the tranny for manual shifting.
