well this isnt a kit with a switch its a straight shift kit to the transmission - always on - very harsh he can tone it down for me but i'll see how it goes during the week

really speeds through the geasrs beautifully

yea no worries mate $250 - i mean honestly i didnt really look around it had a good reveiw by a lot of well known people around my area and i thought what the hell - but i think JMM charges $460 - this came with a free auto transmission service aswell which is worth $80

I am very happy with it

Cheers

This is probably a totally gay question, but what exactly is a shift kit? And what do they do?

dont worry - 2 weeks ago i was askin the same question:P

just strengthens the shift pattern and changes much smooter and quicker through gears - with lsd, 3.7 diff it will improve also i was told thats next on my list!!
