Oh ok I see, I Have always heard that the jmod was the same as a shift kit, my bad...no, the tuner simply changes the shift pressures.. the j-mod changes the flow rates of the fluid
So you did have to change the tuner, that's what I thought.... See I'm not a complete redneck, I know some stuff :heha:the tuner changes shiftb points like when the gears will shift. The j-mod will allow more fluid to move which means a faster shift. A tuner must be changed to 0 shift pressure. it will make the car run weird but if you have both makes one hell of a shift

Ponyboy, AM has an actual shift kit (the performance automatic kit is what I'm assuming you are talking about?)
Yeah now that the situation is cleared up they are from what I'm gathering, I should have went back and said something about that before but I forgot lolI was under the impression that the kit is pretty much the same as a Jmod?

I have a shift kit, over three years since I have bought car, and no telling how long it was in there before I got it, there may be a bad brand out there somewhere I'm sure but not all are bad, the kit (or jmod) noticeably improves the life of the trans due to a slow shifting setup from the factory that causes increased wear on parts, plus with a shift kit the 4R70W can withstand over 500 hp, it's a great transmission :gringreenI've heard the shift kits you can order in will ruin your tranny. Where as a J-mod uses your original valve body, so it causes no problems.
Not sure about this, but something to read more about before buying a shift kit. J-mod seems like the better approach.
Oh shutup mark...:hihi: just playinga j-mod IS a shift kit... i dunno why some of you guys are separating them
