Shift kit is for an automatic transmission, and I wouldn't even think about putting one in if you aren't comfortable changing your tranny fluid and filter.

They change the valvebody such that shifts are firmer, and usually so that the tranny will hold gears longer when you're accelerating hard.

Why only use ford racing? You do know that some ford racing gears are made by motive..
That's just what I've always heard; supposedly other brands will whine. If motive makes FR's gears, by all means they should be just fine.

It will make your shifting firmer. If you like to cruise and not feel the car shift, you won't like it.

The only way it will mess up your car is if it's installed incorrectly.

installs are about 200. depending on the person. it wont hurt your transmission but help it because it makes the weak points stronger.

wouldnt hurt because it brings out a little HP by advancing timing ect. also your going to need it when you have the gears to correct the speedo and then you dont need it for shift kit but it helps it alot because u can tightin up your shifts.
