Shift kits are for automatics. If you have an manual then it wont matter if you have a short shifter or not. A chip will not affect the tranny. If you have an auto then the kit will affect the chip which is why they say that.

But I thought they went out of business?

ASE has never been out of business, thats an unfounded rumor...LOL

A short shifter will help you with your shifts by making them shorter and more accurate meaning you can get the tranny in gear better....it is for manual transmissions.

A shift kit will help make an AUTOMATIC tranny shift harder and quicker, it holds back a certain amount of fluid and builds up pressure between shifts making it shift harder and more responsively

Tranny flushes are for automatics. You have a 2003 truck with a manual in it, you wont need a oil change in that tranny for many years..

amsoil makes a synchromesh replacement? I thought that the only thing for it was GM fluid?
