Shifts excellent, and increases the holding power in 1st and 2nd. I wouldn't run the E4OD without a quality converter and the Tugger or Sonnax kit.

However, to do it properly you need to remove the trans do do the pump mod at least, and there are a couple replacement circlips inside the trans. Don't do it without the pump mods. If not, just get the HD2 spring kit.

But...if you have aftermarket tunes, you may have a harder shift than you want with the replacement accumulator spring. May want to keep the stock spring with it. I'm going to swap mine back to stock on the next fluid change.

How would the spring kit compare to the bully dog shift kit I already have?

No idea. Probably close to the same, looks like an overly expensive shift kit to me.

That's why you can dial in the shift points yourself. Although like I said, if you have a good chip it'll create too hard of shifts with the replacement accumulator spring.
