Joined the Illinois Grand Prix Club recently looking for local installers and meet some really nice people there. I nice guy name GTPHale offered to install my Intense shift kit for $30 bucks. He was a very nice guy who knows his stuff and is running 12'* in his GTP. I think he'* going to be my new local installer, going to do some TOG headers for me soon. He also does rockers and cams ect. haven't decided which I want yet but there'* still time for those decisions, want to get ZZP stage 2 Intercooler at the same time as well. more on this stuff later.
Back to the Intense Shift kit. Had it on couple of days now on my 01 SSEi and I LIKE IT!!!. Nice and firm shifts at WOT. Definitly a difference, when cruising around shifts nice and crisp, not uncomortable at all. At WOT 1-2 shift it'* quite quick and firm and creates some tourque steer too. Feels much sportier riding around. Definite 2 Thumbs up to this product.
The install was very easy and straight forward with good detailed directions, I just have never done anything like this and don't want to F-up my own car . I watched Hale do everything and it was all nuts and bolts job basicly. Pretty easy, but It was well worth the 30 bucks to pick the mans brain for a while install only took 45 min but we BS'ed for 3 hrs. I defintly could of done it myself after seeing this installed.
He'* done many shift kits before and this was his first Intense kit install and he said it was the niceist kit he'* done yet. He gave props to intense on this kit.
Silver bullet- We bought our shift kits around the same time and yours isn't installed yet. You won't regret it, what are you waiting for?
