Well, I installed the medium weights and the lightest springs and definitely had an impact in mid throttle response. Actually, under light throttle, the shift points may be a little high, as the trans will now rev to roughly 2800rpm at very light throttle. With a little tuning, I am sure that I will be able to get the mid-throttle shift point where I want with the adjustment kit that I have.
During the one full throttle blast that I did, the transmission downshifted and then proceeded to run right up to thye 5500 RPM rev limiter and hang there until I let off the throttle, at which time it shifted fine.
I do have an aftermarked good quality dipstick, but was wondering if fluid level could impact this.
Not sure where to go as this really needs to be worked out.
