matter what you do to it. Pulling the vacuum line will make the shifts a
little harder too but most won't even notice the difference. (On a lot of
auto's I find the thing isn't even connected!) On the turbo automatic you
lose the vacuum modulator anyway, it doesn't know what to do with the
pressure! The main reason for harder shifts (shiFt kit) is so you go right
from 1 gear to another. Most auto's when they shift are slipping in 2 gears
at the same time so you wear the clutches more. It is a softer shift though.
On some cars you don't even notice the shift unless you watch the tach. (Not
talking about only Deloreans here)
