I dont know if this is normal or not, but on my 95 sc whenever I get on it the car revs to about a 4500 before it shifts into 2nd and sometimes 3rd gear, if I just take off normal it will shift at about 3000, just curious if that is normal or not, any help would be appreciated, thanks

that could be your trans slipping. does the car jurk hard when it shifts?

no, not really at all, it doesnt feel like its slipping either because I have power the whole time until it shifts into second, but it just doesnt shift into second until it is about 4500 , it actually feels rather smooth at shifts, but I hear that will change after I put a shift kit on it

I would say that is normal. Don't you want it to rev higher when you're stomping it? Try cruising at about 40-45mph and then floor it and see where your rpms go.:D
