Subject: Transgo on a 4x4
IP: Logged

Message:
I have a transco shift kit coming in the mail for my 3.9l 4x4. From what I hear, street/strip is the feel I want, but am I risking damage to my transfer case if I drive in 4x4? Normally, I'm driving lightly if I'm in 4x4, but there's always those times when I get the urge to gun it in the rain (just for fun, no crashing). Is there any leeway on setting it up? I mean can I set it in between performance and street/strip? I do want to have it tuned up as far as 4x4 can handle though.

What year is this truck

89 to 98 the TCI Trans-Scat is a better option, in
99 TransGo changed the kit so it would work in the
99 to 02 and stoped doing the valve body work all
they do is open the 1-2 2-3 shift hole in the sep
plate and jack up the presure and gives you a
harsh shift

TCI Trans-Scat 220500
http://www.tciauto.com/tci.htm
$89 plus shipping direct from TCI

No removing the servos and adding shims to reduce
the cusion in the servo for a faster shift TCI
does it all in the body

Transgo kit
2-3 says show off .110 well my 2-3 hole was
already .135 TCI its .187 3 holes 1-2 2 holes .125
and 1 on the lower sep plate to .110 which also
gives you more aggresive downshifting

I no longer use the transgo kits in the shop since
they changed this All TCI unless its 99 or newer

Larry - just to be sure, I have a 99 Dak and I was saving up for the Transgo. Are you saying for 99 and up it is the one to use? Or for my 99 do I want the TCI instead?

Thanks, and sorry to barge in on the thread with my own questions!

Wal

I have a 2000, so I should keep the transgo? On the box it says it can be set up in Pro Street, HD, and Full Race. If I have it done in HD, it won't blow the 4x4 out of my truck will it? By the way, my gov. solenoid is acting up. Can they clean this out when they have the tranny opened up, or do I really have to get the new part from Chrysler. I want to avoid spending more than I have to.

install the front servo spacer the rear one is not
nessasary unless you plan on shifting manualy it
will give you a faster release but not needed for
the average guy

Sonnax makes an upgraded presure valve that stops
presure flucuation but if your sensor or sol is
bad it will need to be replaced

A good company I get many parts from them

No the shift kit will not hurt your 4X4 that is
mostly what we install them in up here in the snow
belt
