has anyone put a shift kit on their shark? Any information on this would be great. I know someone who installed this on their SS a long time ago and it had hard shifts, sometimes chirping tires from 1st to 2nd, etc. I would like to see if it benefits performance much, where to get it, and difficulty of installation. Thanks!

I installed a Transco kit in my TH400. Just follow the directions, it's almost the easiest thing you can mod. And yes, I chirp the tires from 1 to 2.

Good decision, the TransGo NoYoYo kit is far superior to the B&M kit. The stock 81 came witha th350 3 speed automatic with lock up converter.

Thanks all, I saw that B&M in a catalog, I figured with the cheaper price it probably wasn't as good as the Transgo. Here lately I am a firm believer in "get what you pay for." I noticed some people say Transco and some say Transgo, when I look it up both come up, but I think Transgo is the right spelling. Twin Turbo, are you the same Twin Turbo from Netvettes? How is everything? Making any progress on your vette?

Anyone know where I can order a Transgo shift kit? I looked it up on the internet, but some of the companies that advertised didn't have any in stock.

Okay I am checking out Summit for the Transgo, it has THG - 350 Automatic non lockup for 69.99. It looks like this is the only one available for 81 corvette. I just wanted to make sure because earlier post said 81 corvette had lock-up. If anyone can tell I have no idea what I am doing or talking about. :laughing: Thanks for the help.
