I did the J-mod with about 130,000 miles on the odometer. The car now has 139,000 miles. If you are going to do this, most people are also going to recomend a transmission fluid cooler be installed at the same time. B&M makes some good ones from what I understand. The link IronChops gave you takes you to the tranny section of the tech articles. Read the Ford OD Transmissions 101, A-Train's Shift Kit Install, Modifing Valve Body to Jerry's Specifications, and the Tranny Cooler Install articles for more information why the J-Mod is better than the other shift kits out there, how to install it, and how/where to install a tranny cooler. Also, do a search in the forums on things like jmod, baumann, transgo, etc and you will find a lot of discussions on all the major shift kits out there and make your mind up from that information too. Be forewarned though, some of them can be pretty heated discussions.
BTW, the drivetrain section of the forum deals with transmissions.
