shift Kit

After hyjacking another guys thread, I decided to start my own. I think I'm going to try putting a shift kit in my truck to see how it works, until I get a new trans in, which should be in the next couple months when I think this one is going to die.

Anyways, who sells them, where do you guys get yours etc...? I keep hearing transgo. Do you buy direct from them, and which one is best?
Thanks,
Sean

Next question. Does anybody know if this will keep this from being a usable core later. I am going to go with a full tranny in the future, and I don't want to cost myself the 300 dollar core charge on the valvebody for installing a $100 shift kit. That makes it a $400 shift kit, which is about as much as a new valvebody which I'll be getting anyways.

I don't have a opinion on that. I've done Sure Cure Superior Shifts, but I really don't know what's better. I would do whatever one will let you run high gov pressure. But what's the best... :shrug:

It shouldn't stop you from getting a core. However if I were going to put a V/B I would go with Suncoast all new ones. They have no cores and completely revamped electronics for running over 200 PSI. Best thing out there from what I hear. If I were going to buy a V/B I'd go Suncoast. The transmission shop I worked at for a few years.........shifts kits in V/B never canned a core charge.
