^^^I hadn't finished yet...

So there you have it.
About a 30 minute job total from start to finish, including removal / reinstallation of the intake box.
I can not emphasize enough how much this improves the shifting.
It’s extremely light, and almost shifts itself to the next gear (whether up or down) for you now.
I’m NOT kidding…it’s unbelievable how much lighter and smoother the shifts are.

For those of you (like myself) that rave about the improvements the VF rear mount and STS combo makes in the shifting,
this mod takes it one step further to perfection.
It’s another one of those “it should have come this way from the factory” mods.

Oh…and remember how hard it is to put this tranny in reverse gear?
I can safely say it’s a WHOLE lot easier now.

Oh...and remember that "sticky" 1-2 shift?
