Cool

I am not sure what you mean by "shifts out slow". Does the tranny shift late , still has weak shifts, does it slip or not?

Since you say you installed a shift kit I guess you used a TransGo kit. TransGo has the term "shift kit" trade marked for their use only. Other companies use the terms Shift correction package or Shift Improver

Give me a bit more information to work with.

it may sound crazy but I have a friend that owns a transmission shop who told me to run type F in mine to cure the same problem. It worked.

Type F fluid tends to firm up shifts in any GM automatic. It has the same shifting characteristics as B&M TrickShift as well as other aftermarket fluids.
