Sorry, I'm just getting back to this. My issue was I wanted to raise line pressure, and you're saying that the Sonnax kit won't do that? I had my heart set on a TransGo before I went into that shop to talk to the tranny builder.
Where it all started for me is, like a dummy, I didn't check the tranny fluid in the truck when I bought it last month. Now checking it the other day it's waaay over full, and it's dark red. It should look like blood right? It doesn't smell burnt, but it does look beat up. Also, off the line the truck bangs gears pretty good. Crusing and going to WOT the transmission get's confused, sounds like it's slipping, etc. Leaving the line at light throttle the transmission just seems to damn mushy for my taste. I had a transmission built for my Grand National and at light throttle it bump gears ever so slightly and was a really positive shift, and the harder you got on it the harder it shifted. I really liked that, and that's what I'm looking for.
So I should just buy the Transgo kit (since I don't want a VB
right now) and forgo the Sonnax kit?
