Build it yourself,

Takes about 1 hour, and if you have a bit of electronics knowledge you can even make this one adjustable or two stage by slightly modifying the setup.
Costs about $10 in parts.

I have been using mine in a 200,000K auto on and off for the last few months, and it still surviving.

As Fordfreak ef said I had an electronic one on switch inside the car but now had one built into my auto when i had a hybrid box built up, so now it's constant.
my old one went into xpfalcon170's car.
just build one yourself with the parts from jaycar,dirt cheap to make and a lot of fun to drive! also helps keep your auto from sh*ting itself.

no mate, it wont blow your gearbox up, we've got hundreds of cars out there running with our shift kits and never had one report of a blown gearbox due to the shift kit.

a shift kitted gearbox will infact last longer than a non shift kitted gearbox,
the increased line pressure saves the frictions within the trans.
we've got customers pushing 300+ kw through a factory BA gearbox with noting more than a shift kit and they are holding up fine.
If your talking about shift kitting a box thats done 200,000 kms, then thats another story....
