Well I would like to thank Baxy for posting this thread and all of the details. I have installed my shift kit. It took be 2 day to do it, but I was being very careful. Along with the Superior Shift Kit, I installed the billet aluminum accumulator piston and an aluminum servo and cover. all the shifts except 2-3 feel firmer. Would the 2-3 shift feel softer because I used the stronger supplying spring on top of the new taller accumulator piston?

Taller accumulator piston

Here is the pic of the new piston and the stronger spring. I don't even know if the original piston had a spring on it at all...The ATSG manual said some models don't have a spring on top. Maybe there is a lot more force to move the new piston and stronger spring that it is making my 2-3 upshift feel slow and less firm.

The band adjustment (space in the servo) is the 3rd acumulator
So if you used factory band adjust I would expect a stock feeling shift
As well if you still have a stock torque converter I wouldn't expect 3rd to be too aggressive

After performing this shift kit upgrade, it feels like the transmission wants to hold first gear, and not shift into 2nd...a bit longer. So I either have to go faster or rev higher to shift to second. It isn't a large difference from stock, but it is still noticeable. Why might that be? Should I be increasing or decreasing line pressure, or is this the result of puting in stronger springs to offset the increased line pressure?

Actually the kit should make second gear occur earlier

holding gear

What modification in the kit would tell the transmission to hold 1st gear longer or less long? Would it be the Gov. Solenoid? I thought that the Gov. Solenoid was responsible for telling the transmission when to shift.

What does the plug in the transmission case do? (What does it change?)

What changes, if any, would I notice if I was to increase the line pressure slightly?...Would it affect shift timing?

I just installed this kit on my 2006 dodge 2500 yesterday, and now I have it all put back together and it goes into reverse great, goes into drive and it pulls strong but it will not shift out of first into any other gear. Can't shift manually either. Being that mine is an 06 I have the throttle valve actuator instead of the tv cable but regardless it still will not shift. I have taken it apart 3 times now and reinstalled it in the last day and same thing no shifting every time. HELPPPPP. I did everything to the T like the kit said, I'm so lost. This is my first shift kit installation and I was super confident after I did it but have been let down. I also installed the gm pressure solenoid on the billet block and disregarded the oe one. Did not change the pressure transducer because I don't have one but I don't see it going bad just cuz I put a shift kit in it :/ please help. Memorial Day weekend was supposed to be fun. If anyone can call me and give me advice that would be great. My name is Arden and my cell # is 8309927950. Thanks.
