Banks Transcommand - worth the $$??

I have a 95 Kountry Star with a 460 and E40D tranny

The engine has the full Banks kit - cold air, manifolds and exhaust - the PO installed it.

It doesn't have the transcommand however - I see them selling for around $250 so is it a worthwhile improvement in drivability?

I just installed the full Banks kit with Trans command on my MH and think it is worth it. It gives the MH much firmer/quicker shifts.

I had full Banks on my V-10 and the Transcommand was the only part that I felt made a difference. I think the results on the 460 are much more positive. Having paid nearly 5K for the entire package - purchased from Banks and installed by their local installer, it was not even close to worth the money. But again, the Transcommand is great.
