vtodd82 Posted April 6, 2005 Report Share Posted April 6, 2005 (edited) thanks zippy for the kit, and the help to me and the mechanic he just wanted to give up too soon i think. got it installed, minus the big purple spring and 2 little blue springs . the mechanic highly recoomended that i dont install the purple spring until i get the higher stalling torque converter. he said he can guarentee me, i would thank him, so i took his word on i. he claims f body guys come in all the time wanting them removed and replaced with the stock spring after it was all said and done, i was looking over the directions and in step 4 is where the purple spring goes in. iam sure that is what is directly related to that hard zippy shift, but what are the left over little blue springs??? the mech said they werent needed it shifts great now without, iam just wondering. its like a damn slingshot now when i go WOT. i cant imagine how its gonna be with the other spring. i wish i would have said screw and and told him to put it in anyways . i take it i only have a half zippy shift kit installed right now anyways, i pull out of the garage and put in the new tuned PCM for the shift kit and do the relearn proccess so i turn on my trusty g-tech to get some times and i have actually lost .5-.6 tenghs of a second on my times i was running 0-60 in 5.9 and the 1/4 in 14.2 g tech times. now iam running the 0-60 in 6.3 seconds and the 1/4 in 14.8. i thought i was supposed to gain .2 .3 tenghs with the torque managment turned off iam hoping its just being a new PCM in there and it has to go through its learn procces does anybody have similiar experiences with this, or know what is going on. the other times i have gotten a re tune, it didnt seem to suffer at all, but this was waaaayy worse times. anyways guys thanks for any help in advance, and thanks again zippy, i love the shifts. p.s zippy, what insight can you give me to this spring situation. todd Edited April 6, 2005 by vtodd82 (see edit history) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
