yes, and yes.....ive got an electronic shift kit (i think most of the newer ones are all electronic anyway) that changes the pressure at which the tranny changes gears...its on the power switch as well, so its activated / deactivated with power mode...

Keep in mind that a lot of people have suffered gearbox failure shortly after fitting these electronic kits. I have noticed recently that even some poeple who jump up and down when this is pointed out and say they have no problems are rebuilding there autos after unexplained failure.

I did it to my 5L and in my opinion, a total waste of time and effort.

My gearbox died a few months later from a defective inhibitor switch and this gave me an excuse to drop the manual in. A manual is so much better than a shift kit.

manual = better.
don't be a pretended with an auto. if it's auto, it's slow, deal with it.
otherwise buy a manual.
auto's only good when strengthened and about 250rwkw of forced induction power going through it.

& hauling heavy loaded trailers with (i.e) car/boat/horse float.
You would'nt see me hauling a heavy trailer with a 5speed as the clutch & box would'nt last to long as auto are rated more for pulling weight.
