    Second is something I bought for myself. It's the Suncoast Stage IV kit. I have a Precision TC coming as well. Thanks to UPS loosing everything in the midwest it's not here yet. Also ordered the transfer case pump rub fix kit from Merchant Auto out of Michigan. Got to give a plug to both Mike L. of Inglewood Transmission and Eric Merchant of Merchant Auto. Mike has answered several of my questions no problem over the phone. He also sold me the TC. My dog got a hold of the gasket for the pump rub kit and tore it apart. Called Eric asking if I could buy a new one. He sent one out to me free of charge. Awesome service from both and these guys know Allisons like the back of their hands.

    It's more then just a shift kit. Its all new C-1 through C-4 clutches upgrade to the valve body etc. Should be good for up to 600 HP. I'll never reach it but it will be fun knowing that I can.

    wow they sell rebuilt kit for my C6 $100 that better than auto store that want $170.


    oh that mean like it more reduce clutch slipping like faster engage? our transmission teacher told me that modern transmission today set for soft shift but mean wear out clutches faster so he say hard shift like shift kit would help reduce clutch wear out but not great for u joint or rear axle.

    Here it is in all it's glory. I'm not sure of the exact Precision name but it is suppose to be comparable to a 1058 from Suncoast. I didn't realize how damn heavy these things were. This is the second one to get sent out. The first one got wet and the box destroyed with no label on it. So here was a TC sitting in a UPS warehouse and no one knew anything about it. Way to go UPS:rolleyes:

    I'll be heading over to Illinois Sunday to meet up with a couple members from DP that have experience doing this and the MA Pump rub. The camera will be getting fresh batteries to document the process. I'm looking forward to Sunday. Got to give a big Thanks to Mike L. at Inglewood Transmission. Been a big help answering my questions and getting this new one here quick.

    sounds like fun! Who's going to be helping you work on your truck? How are you liking the new tow mirrors? I'm thinking about getting them but I'm having trouble pulling the trigger

    Only problem with my g/f is that she is a ford fan, not a GM fan.
