question about unhooking "comfort shift"?????

my buddy had did this to his s14 and decided to do it to my car yesterday while we were doing my AVI system removal. Anywho....he said it will not hurt my car in any way. I figured id run by you guys though and ask for a more professional opinion about it. I have noticed ridiculously how much harder it shifts but also seem to notice a slight gain in acceleration. is there any threat im looking at from doing this??? nadditional info that might be useful is....car is a 91, 93k miles (original motor/trans), fluids changed and maintained regularly. thanx alot guys, later

My auto ran till I swapped the trans and I did that on it. The auto had over 200k miles on it and was still fine.

i removed it long ago it doesn't make shifting hard... its just a slight buffer that is all. your pressure plate determines how harsh your engagement really is.

nah, no 5 speed....its a good ol' fashioned automatic. I was talking about the little harness on the driver side closest to the fender ( right next to the ignition coil). I was out earlier driving on the e-way and it was haulin *** 10x better than it seemed to ever have. But when it came time to lift off the pedal and deaccelerate, it was deacceling the same as if overdrive was off( but it was on). Didnt bother me at all tho.

that thing you unplug is just a sensor that gives you smoother shifts... but unplugging it raises the fluid pressure and gives you harder (firmer) shifts between gears.... i dunno if it will actually cause damage but i do know that a firm shift is better than clutches slipping all the time and wearing out... so if you like the way it runs with it unplugged then go for it!!!
