I am a new owner of a stock low mileage 1994 SC. I like the power and I really like the handling, but the tranny shifts pretty poorly. Are there any mods for this transmission without spending a fortune?

Yes, since it is a 94, it has the 4R70, so you can do the J-mod.

J-mod can be had for about $130 by a pro

Best mod would be to upgrade the transmission to a J-modded 98-02 version. The earlier 4R70W's have several weak areas that were addressed in the later versions. Much better internals.

Thanks for the J-mod info. In my area is one reputable transmission shop but they firmly believe "stock is best." Are the J-mod components available as a kit? Might help me convince them to do the install.

Yes, they are called transmission kits I believe, and are supposedly doable at home. I wouldn't try it personally
