Shift Kit question

I have been having a long shift tranition between gears when i get on the pedal hard.(between 2nd and 3rd).Like slipping. I stopped by the transmission shop today and they said the shift springs were bad and that they could put a shift kit, fluid ,and filter in for $200-$250. Question is this a fair price and can this be done by myself? Also are all kits the same or are some better then others? And maybe a link to how to do this as I've not been able to find one. Thanks Chad

DIY - shift kits cost btwn 40-80 bucks and fluid costs money too... DIY I can show you writeups on how to.

You can also buy ValveBodies that already have shift kits in them for around 200-250.

Maintain, is the valvebody the best way to go or is the shift kit OK? I'm just not clear on how this works. Thanks

Well the shift kit is part of the valve body to my understanding. I think the VB just changes the flow pattern of the fluid and is a more advanced way of firming up the shifts besides a few springs. I really don't know enough though to really go into any kind of detail. Hopefully a tranny guy will come along here soon!

Thanks guys I'm going to give BTS a call and ask them the benefit of the Valvebody for the E40D.
