you cannot put an adjustable modulator on your car, you will have to have your computer reprogrammed or install a shift kit to firm up your shifts

Only 4T60 type transmissions from 87-97 non-supercharged and 91-95 supercharged can do this.

After these years, the 4T65E didn't use a modulator. Shift firmness is controlled internally by springs/valves, and by the PCM only. You need a shift kit and/or a performance PCM for those.

In the future, don't edit quotes. That'* like putting words in other'* mouths. Quote the person, and post your corrections.

But yes, you are correct. 96 L67 did have the 60.
