727 Shift Kit Question. Do I need a kickdown cable/linkage?
« on: March 29, 2021 - 05:20:27 PM »
I've got a 73 Challeger i'm going to put a shift kit in (vendor recommendations welcome). It currently doesn't have a kickdown cable/linkage (vendor recommendations welcome). Will I need one? Thanks much!

I posted an answer on FEBO but to recap

1. you MUST run kick down linkage because it controls line pressure. Failure to do so will burn up the trans

2. Mancini has linkage kits but I run cables on all of mine, I use Lokar but I like the Bouchillon Performance kit
