Here is the referring URL to the other poster having the same problem. I was hoping to find a solution for him. If you design a clean changeover, I would think it would be worth $ to many.

ok, speaking out loud(not having thought this out yet)

What if I drilled a hole in the linkage bracket, below the spring hole and connected the kickdown cable there. In theory that should work?




I'm gonna think about this for a minute.

Thumbs up

It will work. But you have to have the cable housing fixed so as to be able to adjust the kickdown point.

Did you upgrade to a C6?

yea, the bracket I have for throttle has a part for the kickdown, I just didn't install it.

I did, went to a c6 about 3-4 years ago when I redid the engine. I went with a TCI Tranny and surprisingly, it works great, real strong and powerful.

GOOD LUCK!

Thank you... Yea she definitely flies now.

I think this is the strongest she has ever been. I am surprised this upgrade made that much of a difference.

The shift points are much higher, smoother and stronger. Still can't smoke the tires, but once I hit about 2500 - 3000 rpm she takes off and I mean gone.
