The quicker the shift, the better and easier it is on the clutches however it is harder on the hard parts such as the input shaft and things. It is a compromise in longevity but has more pros than cons.

so then for every day driving, would it be best to leave my car in perf. shift or normal shift? Ignore the minimal difference in gas economy. My car is on its 3rd transmission so that is my utmost concern.

Matt,

The Jet Stage 2 will help with that in another way (raising the line pressure to firm/quicken up the shifts). When you have your trans rebuilt, have a shift kit installed as well. The combination of the two are the better way to do this than an adjustable modulator in my opinion.

FYI, the Zilla'* trans is in the process of recieving a shift kit right now.

I have heard good things about increased line pressure, Jet stage 2 would be a good move.

I think I'll leave mine alone. I can't afford a tranny rebuild as a result of wear. Thanks for all the input though.

Do you notice any difference in your car? (you installed the shift buttons, right?) I can't tell any difference between modes, even at WOT

I have a hard time 'feeling' it myself, but it'* obvious on my Gtech when I overlay a non-PS run with a PS run.
