There are a number of things that make a shift kit something I HIGHLY recommend. As I said, one thing was the prolonged life. I also eliminated the problem I was having with my Pressure Control Solenoid. It was A WHOLE LOT CHEAPER than the $500 - $1000 for a replacement. As a matter of fact, I saw an add on eBay for the Transgo kit that specifically addressed the solenoid issue, and this is what got me looking into it in the first place.
Another benefit that was unexpected was a MUCH more solid "feel" to the whole driving experience. The shifting was now more positive without being harsh. I had no idea that the slushy-ness of the trans would affect the overall feel of driving the car. Basically, the trans now shifted the way it always should have.
