A Modern-Transmission Swap Made Easy With FiTech

Modern-transmission swaps are a lot easier thanks to the Go-Shift controller.

If you have a classic car, hopefully you spend a lot of time behind the wheel racking-up a lot of highway miles. There’s not much that is cooler than hopping in your classic Chevy and just going for a ride. A destination isn’t even needed, it’s all about the drive.

The folks at FiTech Fuel Injection understand that. They also realize that the traditional three-speed automatic transmission might not be conducive to a lot of highway cruising. FiTech understands that upgrading to a modern overdrive transmission adds an aspect of functionality that many are hesitant to address – the electronic controls required by modern transmissions. Thanks to FiTech’s Go-Shift electronic transmission controller, that worry is a thing of the past.

The Go-Shift has the ability to control shift points, shift firmness, when to downshift properly, and all other features involved with controlling the transmission.

The Go-Shift controller enables enthusiasts to achieve function of aspects like wiring, back-up lights, and shift points. This new control unit will work with GM’s 4L60E, 4L65E, 4L80E, and the 4L85E transmissions. It will also allow you to control the firmness of each shift. If you want a nice, smooth transition each time the transmission shifts, you can have it. But, you can also adjust the firmness to give you that “shift-kit” feel each time a gear change is done.

Features Of The Go-Shift Electronic-Transmission Control

  • Works on GM 4L60/65/80/85 E
  • Controls shift points
  • Controls shift firmness
  • Controls which gear is activated
  • Controls clutch-holding ability
  • Adjustable for gear ratio and tire diameter
  • Torque converter lock-up control
  • Speedometer calibration and output
  • Paddle-shift input compatible

It’s time to upgrade that hot rod and give it modern flair with an overdrive transmission, and the FiTech Go-Shift can make that dream a reality.
