you get the whole search ordeal thrown at ya on this.

J mod it. Better shifting, longer life of tranny. and if you can, throw in a tranny cooler while your at it...even longer life.

You will be best served by The Master's "J-MOD"

Maybe someone can help you with part #'s - drill bit size's ect

I can only say, read the procedure over and over, till you are sure
of what is to be done and go at it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did mine - and at
first read - I didn't feel I could do it ,BUT everything came together
nicely !! and YES to installing a Trans Cooler B&M makes a nice kit.

Hope this Helps Curt

I had a local tranny shop do the J-Mod for me. Brought them print-outs of the pertinent Tech Articles, and they said "no problem". However, they said they weren't sure how long it would take, and gave me an estimate of 3 to 5 hours, at a labor rate of $45/ hour.

Provided all the parts, including a pre-drilled separator plate.

$100 in labor and it was all done.

The Shop was;

Ralph's Transmission Shop

Cool. There's a Mr Transmission in the area that was recommended to me. Supposedly they will do custom work like shift kits and stuff, so I'm hoping they'll do a j-mod, TC install, and flush/fill with Mercon V.

Very few people recommend the Trans-go over the J-Mod.

Yes, you should do the 1-2 and 2-3 accum's on your 94.

Also, you should take advantage of the Search feature here.

I bet if you type in the word "Trans-go" you will find lots of interesting comments.

Do the J-mod. Trans go isnt recommended over J mod but it is over the B&M tranny products for our cars.
