It would be good for gearbox as it wont be 'slipping' into gear, less slipping, less heat, means good for gearbox

Downside, depending on how harsh the shifts are with the shiftkit on, increased stress on driveshaft, uni's, diff

As long as the shifts aren't ridiculously hard, it'll be fine.

Sure it shifts harder and chirps into second, but the novelty wears off.

Can't comment for that product, but 'shift kits' do not necessarily affect life expectancy on a box. Obviously if some will if they aren't designed well/run ridiculously high line pressures.
