Below are some common Questions and Answers we hear about the TransGo product that we thought would be great information for you.
What's the difference between a Shift Kit® and a Reprogramming Kit ™? TransGo Shift Kit® branded products are designed to reduce/prevent/correct complaints such as "shift irregularities or durability issues". Shift Kit's® are perfect for normal use or towing. Shift Kit's® does NOT produce performance type shifts. TransGo Reprogramming Kit™ branded products are designed with performance in mind and most but not all models contain additional features like Gear Command that allows you to hold manual low to any speed and shift back to low at any speed. Great for strip cars or 4x4 rock crawlers needing to select low and not have it up-shift. Most Reprogramming Kit™ products can be tuned for HD (Heavy Duty) use by following the recommendations in the kit.
If you desire full manual control, we offer Stick Shift versions for most models that provide no automatic up-shifts, in a forward pattern only, available under the Reprogramming Kit™ brand. So if you're looking to retain shift comfort but want added durability use the Shift Kit® branded products. For performance shifts without sacrificing durability use our Reprogramming Kit™ branded products.
NOTE: Shift feels also depends on many factors such as vehicle weight, tire diameter, differential ratio, engine torque, and converter stall speed.
Will a TransGo® Shift Kit® or a Reprogramming Kit™ have any effect on a vehicle's computer commanded controls?
NO, TransGo Shift Kit's® and Reprogramming Kit's™ make zero changes to your vehicles PCM/TCM programming.
Will a TransGo® Shift Kit® or a Reprogramming Kit™ make a transmission shift hard all the time?
NO, TransGo Shift Kit's® and Reprogramming Kit's™ have a progressive shift feel. Progressive, meaning the shift becomes firmer in relation to throttle. NOTE: Shift feels also depends on many factors such as vehicle weight, tire diameter, differential ratio, engine torque, and converter stall speed.
