I build racing transmissions, and have been doing so for several years now. I talk to peers in the industry often. A couple who frequent this forum.

My opinion is, only TransGo makes a "Shift Kit". They coined the term and have fought in court to keep it trademarked. You have to be careful about what you call a shift kit, and this is why B&M and others cannot use tha phrase.

I call it a valve body kit, and in many cases they do several things that increase the longetevity of a trans. I do my own valve body mods in many cases but in certain units still use TransGo products.

You are still making assumptions and the point isn't to start a pissing contest.

I never said B&M didn't make a kit, they simply don't make a "shift kit" for the reasons above.
