Need help with Transgo pro 400 install

2905 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Motorvation
I just installed a Transgo pro 400 kit because I wanted firmer shifts and full manual control however there is no change in how my transmission functions. There is no change in shift firmness and the transmission still up shifts and down shifts on its own. I followed the instructions but can't figure out what I did wrong. The instructions state I must use the vacuum modelator, is this correct?

The other problem I have is now the gates on my B&M prostick are out of adjustment. 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear are fine but now you have to disengage the reverse lock out to put the car in neutral. I assume this problem can be fixed by re-adjusting the shifter cable but I just didn't get the chance yet.

This is my first time working on a transmission so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I did drill larger holes in the separator plate in the locations specified by the instructions. The instructions also state the kit requires the use of the modulator so that's why I left it on. If I did install everything else correctly would leaving the vacuum modulator attached cause the transmission to up and down shift automatically even though the kit is supposed to convert the valve body to full manual? And if this is the case I still don't understand why the shifts aren't any firmer. If I do have to disconnect the vacuum modulator where can I get a plug from since the kit didn't come with one?
I just called TransGo and found out the 400-Pro kit which I installed does not give full manual control like I wanted. I misunderstood the product description on their website and should have purchased their 400-3 kit. I guess the good new is I don't have to get back under the car and drop the pan again and the bad news is I just spent a lot of time and money and didn't get what I wanted. I guess I shouldn't be surprised because every time I work on the car something either goes wrong, takes more time than planned or ends up costing more than I planned on spending.
