Lovin' the jmod

Yes I am!!
Got up to about 50 mph on a ramp in 1st and then it shifted. Hell yeah!! Big screech. Not a chirp! Of course crappy tires helps you make more noise. Hopefully soon, I'll have some 245's to grip the road with.

I bet it's fun, I don't have near the HP you do, and my 1-2 shift is pretty brutal.

There are times when it's pretty stout...at that certain throttle/rpm/speed combo. Low acceleration is ok. WOT is gonna wear my tires out...hehe. This morning on the way to work, I was 1/2 throttle and I chirped it good.

Yeah he did...
Actually I wasn't "gettin' on it" when he caught me. I just flat out didn't know the speed limit. Funny that I was kind of going with the flow of traffic, maybe a little faster. 53 in a 35. Sheesh.

Hi all, i got a "partial j-mod" back in November. (in my signature) What i mean is i only got the shift kit installed. Is there more to the j-mod then just the shift kit, because the only difference i've noticed is that my car has more accurate shifts. (it like kicks into gear right away) Does the shift kit help your 1/4 et. better? Also, what else is invoved in the j-mod besides the shift kit if there is any thing else involved? Thanx all,

My other home:

I assume that by partial j-mod you mean you had the sep. plate drilled and that's it. If so, I would go back and get the updated 1-2 and 2-3 accumulators and blue top spring for the 1-2. I don't know exactly what you've done, but sounds like you are almost there. I was gonna just drill the plate, but many searches and members suggested that I upgrade the accumulators while in there. didn't cost much, and it's added security for me as far as I'm concerned. No more guessing if the trans will fail due to these parts. Now the rest, wellll, who knows. I had about 91,000 on my 95 trans when I did it, and had bad shudder. Now with the mods, no more shudder, and a chirp at 2nd if I really crowd it My spring was not broken in the 1-2, but the 96 cougar that I just recently did was. Go figure. I'd say finish it up, but I'm sure someone w/ more experience will chime in. All I know is it made a huge difference in the driveability and fun of my bird, and gives me peace of mind(somewhat). And yes, I beleive the "shift kit" does help w/ et's as the trans will be shifting with less lag and more accuratly.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

Hey couple Oklahomans posting, anyway I want to do this soon. I am use to manual transmissions were I can shift as hard as I want, now I get whatever the car wants. So the jmod should give me those nice firm shifts.

We need to do it quick, I'm headed out on the 20th, and won't be back until August 25th, or sometime around then.

I'll be there, probably won't have the Cougar by then, I've had a few people come by and look at it, and they are really interested, and I'm not buying my new car until I get back, no sense in paying insurance on a car to sit in the driveway for 3 months.
