I have installed the B&M shift kits before and they have performed as expected. The stage 2 kits are pretty good for a mild built engine. The Stage 3 kits are a little strong on the 2-3 shifts but will be very annoying on the street.

Thanks for the input. I am leaning towards the transgo from what others have told me. Hey Joe, Shoot me an update on your outcome when you get a chance, Good luck and thanks again.

Any input on Transgo or B&M shift kits? I am hearing that Transgo is the way to go....

I'm showing my age with this one....I installed a B&M shift kit in my '73 Lemans Sport Coupe with a 350 V8 and TH375-B back in 1979 when I was 19 years old. It was fairly easy. I did the stage I only since I didn't have a modified motor and it performed very well. The shifts were definitely a lot firmer but still very comfortable for the street.

So B&M has my vote. That said, what are you putting it in, how hot is the motor and tranny?

Thanks for the reply Frosty, Don't worry buddy I graduated high school in 79 so I am right there with you....Its a 400 motor. Small cam, ram air heads and exhaust manifolds, double roller chain. 400 trans with 367 pro-built posi rear. Just want to chirp that 2nd when I'm in the mood. Trans is in good shape, oil color is great and smells fine. I was told by the previous owner that there was a shift kit in there but I am not convinced. 1st to 2nd shifts like any normal trans, 2nd to 3rd goes in a lot quicker. I have been doing some reading on these transgo kits and it seems less invasive with great results....

Hey I right there with you pal. I support anything that means less work for me. Give the transgo a shot and let us know your experience.
