Hey guys, after recently getting my tranny rebuilt and had a trans-go Street-smart shift kit put in, it has not been wanting to shift to 3rd with more than 1/4 or 1/3rd throttle, just keeps going til I let off. Also, manually shifting from 3rd to 2nd is the still the same as it was when stock, but 2nd to 1st manual shift is instant.
Could the shift kit have been installed incorrectly? I heard that there's a steel orifice cup plug that should be left out from these kits as they're intended for the 727's ( I have a 44RE).
I played with the TV cable and it didn't help very much, pulled it out pretty far, scared to go too much more though as it might be hard on the tranny. All other shifts are quick and firm like a shift kit should be.
So the TV cable is definitely not the culprit, played with it more and it only likes a certain position to shift nice without delays or downshifting too soon but I still have the 2-3 upshift problem which I think might be sensor related now. It's going back to tranny shop Monday so they can fix it under warranty. I was just hoping it was a simple tv tweak, oh well.
Wonder what else could cause this? Tranny shop swore up and down that they adjusted bands properly and shift kit was definitely dome right. Sucks that I have to drive it 50miles once
again to get service.

Yea, they'll claim that all day long but then, why is it shifting wierd? I have a shift kit and mine hits the same shift points as stock (except for WOT). All my shifts are crisp and clean. They definitely caused an issue.
If I had to do it over again I'd order a valvebody from Martin saine and just slap it in.
