Default Shift Kit

How would an intense shift kit improve the performance of my 2000 SE?

INTENSE™ Street/Strip Performance Shift Pak®

The INTENSE™ Street/Strip Performance Shift Pak® is designed to give you crisp shifts under light to medium throttle positions, and very firm shifts at wide open throttle. It is not designed to rip your dashboard out, break your input shaft or destroy your transaxle drive chain.

The INTENSE™ Street/Strip Performance Shift Pak® is installed by removing the transaxle pan, then the accumulator cover. The accumulator housing contains the 1-2 and 2-3 pistons that control the rate at which fluid pressure gets applied to the clutch packs during upshifts and downshifts. Our kit contains custom springs and spacers to create the ideal shifts for a mix of street and strip use. Shorter shift cycle times mean less time when the PCM retards ignition timing during each shift to protect the transaxle.

Shortening the shift times serves to increase clutch life, due to less slippage between gears. Less slippage equates to less heat, and less heat can extend overall transaxle life.
There are two basic settings, depending on whether you have a 245 mm. (stock in 4T65E transaxles) or 258 mm. (stock in 4T65E-HD transaxles) torque converter. This kit is by far the most comprehensive performance shift pak on the market for our transaxles.

Of the shift kits that I have seen for the 4t65e, all seem to be very similar. I had mine set to high (6yrs ago-lol), then I got a reprog PCM, I had to change my setting to medium. At that point the shifts were firm and MUCH smoother. Clutches looked almost new with 120k, and installed the kit at 42k, PCM at 48k...



Good luck, they are all descent, and bring a to your face

I dont think they would, but if your pushing enough power and have a healthy trans it possible.

On a stock or mostly-stock L36? And a car that heavy? Not likely. But it will shift firmer.

I doubt it will make any noise on the 1-2 shift, but what I think Haro is saying is you might get something from the downshift to first. Mine does.
