I've done neither, but just got my Transgo package from Summit that I'll install next week.  So I'm thinking of this upgrade, too.  From what I can tell from looking at pics of each installation, the Bouchillon loks like a slightly nicer set-up, but costs 2.5X as much.

Problem is, I'm not sure it's 2.5X as good.  It seams way overpriced for something as simple as a transmission kickdown on a 25 yr old truck.  Am I missing something here?

Yes, stock set up is dumb - too many compromises. Given that, you're quality options are the Lokar or the Bouchilon - choose one.

The lokar is about $70 and most people say they have no problem with it - bolts right up with no worries; easy to adjust. A few folks have said they had to drill holes in the transmission lever. Sounds like a minor thing to me.

The Bouchilon is about $130 and also bolts right in. I've heard zero complaints about the Bouchilon, other than its price and that it "doesn't look as cool". Bouchilon is also a mopar-specific application, so it has that going for it.

I had the lokar set-up and it was fine but I just couldn't seem to dial it in, shifts always seemed to be off a bit to me.  I bought a bouchillon kit it was extremely easy to install and it worked as described but I expected nothing less from guys that live and breathe mopar.  Your choice both will work.

Unless I'm mistaken, the Mancnini cable is a re-branded Lokar. Sometimes you can find the Mancini version on sale - if so, no reason not to buy it if you're leaning towards Lokar anyway.
