Thanks for the feedback, On 5 speed I know they are the way to go but
I went with automatic to get away from all the clutch/shifing(old guy...Click the image to open in full size.

It seems at about 40-45 miles an hour range it shifts back and forth from
one gear to overdrive.

Are there any companies that specialize in shift valve body or aftermarket
torque converter stuff.

Thanks.

Hey man, I feel your pain. My parents had the choice of car so obviously it had to be an auto. Still though, who says autos can't be fast? try this link, it costs alot, but it'd be about the same for labor and a new manual. http://www.tciauto.com/tci.htm
Also, be sure to change your transmission fluid when the time comes. I'm sure any name brand performance fluid would be ok, just swap out a quart every time you change your oil to avoid draining the whole thing and burning out the torque converter.

TCI has all the upgrades for D series auto. Master overhaul kit, torque converter, racing transmission fluid. Ask them if the axles are for manual or auto.
