I have a 289 with c4. I want to add some sort of shift kit to my tranny. I dont want something that will allow me to accidently drop into 1st gear going 90mph , but I want something that will make my tranny shift a lot harder. First off, what is the best kit out there for my application? second, how much will it change my transmission and shifts?

One more thing..I dont want a kit that I have to start drilling the valve body or anything like that, I dont wanna screw something up.

It depends on the year of the C-4 you have.
It needs to be a 67 or newer select shift valve body with the 1-2-3-N-R-P pattern.
I haven't seen a shift kit for a green dot Valve body yet.
I like the Trans Go product personally.
You can tailor the shifts to your liking with their kits.
