06 Mustang V6 Auto Trans
Let me give you a little background. I bought an 06 V6 Mustang with an automatic trans. I would like to improve the shifting. I would like the shifts to be much quicker. My only previous experience with an automatic is when I had a shift kit installed in my 1969 Torino (C6). I had rebuilt the trans myself and had noticed that the gears engaged by using a series of clutch plates and piston to engage the plates with each shift of the trans. After the rebuild, I had a trans shop open up a hole in the restrictor plate (behind the valve body?) and placed stronger springs in the valve body also. If I understand the results, this allowed more trans fluid to drive the piston against the clutch plates. This created the much firmer shift I was looking for.
Now, with SCT XCalibrator 2 unit, will it raise the shift points only (miles per hour) or will it actually create a firmer shift? If the 06 Mustang design of the auto trans is the same as my old C6, will it actually cause the piston to generate more force against the clutch plates? Thanks.
