It corrects shifting issues that the 4t60e's had which makes them last longer i believe, it's not exactly a "shift kit" but there is an improvement, for even better shifting you can shim your accumulator springs with washers 1/8"-3/8" and also a dual stripe adjustable vacuum modulator to up your transmission line pressure would help.
Someone with more transmission experience/knowledge could answer this better

You answered it quite well... It fixes the problems with the trans as well as firms up the TCC engagement some... it's not a performance kit in any way but will help the longevity of the trans if that's what your out for.

I don't believe it would benefit me to do this to mine then, I have an aftermarket transmission cooler and I use full synthetic ATF with no unusual issues.

Gracias!

It never hurts to improve the faults of the transmission... even if you run synthetic and a cooler. There are valve body issues that aren't fixed by those two.

Hmmm... this may be a summer project for me then. I have a transmission pan drain plug I've been dying to install anyways.

It never hurts to play doctor!

Just buy a ZZP aluminum pan with the drain plug in it ;)

Before you tear it apart, you should take it to Bfest first!

Transgo 4T60E Shift Kit?

Postby whiteretta » Sat Apr 19, 2014 3:32 pm

I picked an adjustable vacuum modulator, what is the recommended method for adjusting these for a firmer shift on the 4T60E?

I did some internet research, but the responses were way too broad to make an accurate decision from.

Nevermind; I got mine adjusted properly. I turned mine 9.5 rotations in from the fully out position, the timing betweens the shifts is pretty much eliminated!

I did the same on my '89 Park Avenue, but I turned it 7.5. It still shifts fairly smooth, just the lag has been removed from the shifts.
