    Default AW4 shift kit

    Just wondering if anyone has seen such a part. I found an A340/ AW4 custom valve body for 500 bucks, no thanks.

    Don't suppose these electronic trannies have a separator plate you can drill out or some such?

    Mine's really loafing between shifts.. it's having a hard time with the torque I believe.

    My AW4 shift kit is 3 neon green plastic zip ties. The tranny cable that connects to the throttle can be tightened by pulling out some of the slack in it after it connects to the TB. I couldn't even beleive this worked, but it did.

    I've got the cable set as aggressively as possible. I never drove this trans before I put it behind the 401, so maybe it's getting tired.

    Did the zip tie thing, put 3 small ones on with a little slack left, shifts REALLY fast with a nice little kick. I just finished taking up all the slack, now its time to test if it will bark 2nd.. This is the coolest free-mod ever.

    I'm not very familiar with the Supra scene, but unless people are swapping AW-4's into their Supras, they're not running them. The N/A Supras from 86-98 ran A340E's while the 93-98 Turbos ran A341E's.

    After spending so much time driving my built 46re, I just started driving the '93 again and MANNN does that AW-4 shift SOOO soft and slow. I'm not sure how much longer I can hold back until I yank it out and build the crap out of it

    Haha, qwik, my man, you know your 5.9's, but not your AW4s. That is another name for pretty much the exact same Aisin Warner tranny. I don't remember what exactley, but I think it just has a slightly different valve body or the like. Somebody slap me if I'm wrong.

    Hahah, you're welcome. Yeah, I thought that too. It really wakes it up, and the total cost was 3 zip ties I had in the back anyway. I doubt this mod gives you the full benefit of a proper kit however, as in reduced tranny heat and wear from the quicker shifts. Either way, I'll take it.

    There ya go, haha, j/k, I saw that smiley and just HAD to do it, I'm not gonna lie, I'm really not that familiar with AW-4's, Supras, or their trannies. Just noticed they have different #'s. It's prob like the 44re vs. 44rh vs. 46re, etc.

    Nope, no zip tie trick. Just the 200,000 miles of proper maintanence mod .

    The 4.6 probably doesn't hurt either. It had to be a freak deal, its locked in the rear with a 33x12.50 BFG Mud Terrain.

    If I understand, you pulled the cable through the black plastic connector and then put the zip ties on the cable. The ties don't connect the cable to anything else, they just act as a spacer between the plastic connector and the end metal crimp on the cable. Is this right??

    I have no idea why since its not supposed to make a difference, but on my 95 with the AW4 it shifts quicker and firmer in 3 than in the D setting. Its not supposed to make a difference but it really does in mine.
