I want to rebuild my C6 tranny and add a shift kit. I am looking at the TransGo rebuild kits and the B&M Transkit but im not sure which one i should get. The TransGo has heavy duty, street/strip, and full automatic. What do you guys recommend? And which shift kit should i go with? i was thinking the Transpak or a street/strip Transgo one. I have a 351C with performer intake, holley 650 double pump, Flowmaster, and MSD 6AL. What's my best choice? thanks.

I'll second Alex on the trans-go. I've used them for years on all of my trannys and never had a problem. The B&M stuff always seemed way overpriced. You can get this stuff for a good price at:

www.northernautoparts.com

Been buying alot of parts from them for a long time, and never had a problem. Nice thing is they offer "upgrades" to all of their engine kits. Better gaskets, pistons, bearings, cams etc. Can't beat the prices, and it's all good stuff. Oh, and they carry McQuay-Norris suspension parts, which carry a lifetime guarantee and are all USA made!!!

Ok sounds like Transgo is a lot better. I was leaning towards that one too but i wanted a second opinion. Now I am not sure which option I should go with.

I'm very happy with my B&M kit. I run a C-6 and it shifts nice and tight. I had a local shop do the work which may have helped. I'm not brave enough to try an automatic tranny rebuild....yet!!

Did the TransGo shift kit myself and it actually worked when I got done. Much to my surprise, I didn't screw anything up. Good directions. The kit shifts real hard and works very well.
