Dave is ready to make a name for oneself
We just installed TorqueFlight's shift kit that he built for us. All I gotta say is WOW! This sucker is awesome. If anyone is considering buying one from him, I highly recommend it. At WOT it barks 2nd gear as hard as a friggin' 5spd. This is in our '89 PLymouth Acclaim with just a mitsu turbo, TII i/c, 2.5"exhaust, and MP computer running 12psi. Even at 8psi it barks the tires in 2nd gear.

My dad and I both are very pleased with his kit, he did a helluva job!

Thanks TorqueFlight.

It's so true though what do you run? 18s or 19s in the 1/4?

I think it's the suspension setup and tall 60 series tires that are hindering it.

It's very similar to the "homemade" shift kit, with the an extra spot or two where I tweaked the valve body further. If I had a working scanner, I could show the extra spots where I tweaked it. Maybe I'll try and explain it in one of the stickys. The tweaking is easy to do, but it may be more difficult to explain where to tweak it without a pic.
I've also figured out how to crank the line pressure (as high as you want to make it, 200 psi if you want to get it that high) on these "homemade" modded valve bodies without it affecting the WOT shift points. I'm currently experimenting with spring tensions trying to find the right one to get the proper shift points. Once I figure it out, I'll let everyone know how to do it. I think extra line pressure will greatly improve on the "homemade" shift kit.

That would be great. I finally found a good valve body, did all the mods and found a stronger spring out of a Gil Younger 727 kit. 2nd gear barks and 3rd is rock solid in a stock trans that has no internal mods.

Finding a way to trick the WOT points would be awesome. This governor is stock so it won't shift out of 1st at WOT but thats fine, my strong one should be going back in soon.

you cant go too high on the line pressure or the drums break (unless you know some special trick that none of us know about)
