If this kit works as advertised and it will indeed hold gears until redline then it would be a great way to control the automatic. Automatic cars are always faster and more consistent in the quarter mile and properly setup paddle shifted autos are faster on road style courses too. Manual trannies are antiquated and far too prone ot failure. I don't hear of problems with the automatic V8 and V8 but I sure do hear a bunch of problems with the V6 and V8 cars manual trannys.....
If you think you need this in your Stang then I think you bought the wrong car.
Easy for us guys that bought the manual tranny to say.
However, there are plenty of people who got the auto tranny due to various reasons (awful traffic, handicaps, etc) that should not be hampered with such an antiquated shifting mechanism. Hell, even the Focus (Fusion?) SE has paddle shift I think.
