I've got a 89 Crown Vic police package with 351W 5.8L and AOD.
Tranny have been completely rebuilted 1 year ago, and I've added a small
shift-kit for firm shifts. I already have an additional trans cooler,
external to the one already present in the radiator. I've got a torque
converter stalling at 2500rpm.
With the police package, my shift pattern is "P R N OD D 2" (Lo "1" doesn't
exist like in most AOD transmissions). When I put in "2", is starts ans
stays in 2nd speed. So when I want to race, I can't lock to the first
speed. I must let the shifter to "D" and wait for automatic shifts...
The problem : Stock AOD's shifts at 4200~4400rpm, which is too slow. I want
a higher shift range (~5500rpm).
I've heard about an high speed governor that could increase the shift point
to 5500~6000rpm. Will this interfere with my existing shift-kit? Where
could I buy a similar kit? Any ideas?
Thanks a lot
