Sweet ive got 11 months on mine left then. Yeah from experience with my shift kit, sometimes when you back off it dont sound like its doing the gearbox/driveline and favors. But is a hell of alot of fun.
I got the fully adjustable RPD kit and damn its probably the best $50 ive spent lately (on my car).
Hmmmmm if it breaks that means i get my T5 faster.

i notice a lot of people on here talking about the soft shift kit

my auto is pretty crappy, its fairly jolty between gears (it had a hard towing life)

would one of these soft shift kits help alleviate this? i mean i know it can only do so much when the gearbox is pretty rooted, but will it make my changes a little 'softer/smoother' ??

Hi Gang! I'm a newbie. Great forum going on here.

Can anyone tell me how to get instructions to make and fit a smooth change mod?

At 48 years I don't need the chirp (welll .....) but it seems to take 4ever to change up. Any other ideas to increase fuel economy ( without getting a pushbike).

Thanks

so you want to quicken up the shifts but not get a very harsh shift? a change in resistor values should be able to do that, or get an adjustable shift kit, and set it to low?

Or alternatively, you could support a site sponser and buy from Jay's RPD, and get a fully adjustable shiftkit.
And yes the RPD shift kits are the shiznet, they are great fun. And is far cheaper then shiftkits.com

I just got a rebuilt heavy duty BTR put in with a variable solenoid that has been firmed up .... shifts beautifully ... handles manual shifting without harming the auto.

Money well spent IMHO.
