shift kit will firm up the shifts, keep the clutch packs alive a little longer, if memory serves its not for a weekend wrencher to do, i dont think you have to drop the trans but the valvebody does have to come out so you can modify

a harder shifting transmission will love longer than a soft shifting one because they clutches arent engaged as long, so they arent wearing as much

Suncoast makes the best kit out there

however dont think that the shift kit is going to help your tranny survive a tuner over 100hp for long periods of time, you still need a converter and other upgrades as well
