Default Thinking about getting a shift kit.

Anybody on here have one? I'm thinking about getting one and seeing if anybody has any suggestions. I basically wana hammer down from a stop, and when she shifts into second, I want her to let out a little chirp . So if you guys have any ideas or any comments or bad stories about them let me know please.

What trans do you have? I've seen some of these kits build too much pressure and crack the valve body.

I've used TransGo shift kits in the past and had good experience with them.

A cheaper way to firm up your shifts and add a little HP to boot might be a programmer, such as the SuperChips 3865.

And for my common knowledge...what transmission comes with the '99 Ram 4X4 with the 5.2L???

I already have the superchips 3815 and it doesn't really do anything for my trans. I have a 99 ram 1500 5.9 4x4 sport model and it doesn't do anything for that trans. But I don't know what tranny I have either. The main reason im wanting one is because I'm getting ready to throw some 35's on her and wanting to give the trans a lil extra umph.

I had a lot of trouble finding shift kits for my 2002 w/360. I can't remember what it is, but isn't the tranny on the 360 the same for pretty much all the years? This thread is making my money burn a hole in my pocket right now.

46RE trans I believe. Both the 318 and 360.

Hemi Rams have the 48RE which is the revised version with another gear.

That's exactly what i'm looking for, is there anyway you can get ahold of him and find out???? IF not thats cool also, but mine doesnt need rebuilt yet but it will eventually and if not then cool but I'm deff wanting a shift kit to do that. and i might get it rebuilt just for sence of security and have them put the kit in.
