I recently put in a B&M Transpack Kit in the tranny of my 88/305 TBI Camaro.
I used the Street/Strip Version of that Kit for shorter and snappier shifts.
After that i also changed the ratio of the rear-end from 2.76 to 3.08.
Im realy happy with that combination. But what i dont like is the real hard
shifting from 1 to 2 gear.
Now i thougt that i could rechange the spring for the 1 to 2 gear
actuatorpiston in the tranny back to the original one to make just this
Is this a good idea.
Thanks for your advice or for any other idea to solve my problem.
I've got an '85 TPI with that tranny, and I think it's stock. It also has a
pretty hard hit at full throttle from 1st to 2nd, but it's fine at partial
I'm no tranny expert, but I would go ahead and try the spring change.
Did it affect the other shifts too? I suppose I'll have to rebuild my tranny
eventually, as it's got almost 160K on it, if it hasn't been touched before,
and it would be nice to know if the B&M kit would make life too uncomfortable.
