When I worked at Aamco like 10 years ago we would always recommend Transgo to anyone wanting a little more. Iv stuck by them ever sins I know you can get them online and on eBay I always go to my local speed shop to get them anymore. Iv also used B&M shift kits a couple times. But in any case you really want to go with a quality brand because if a part fails because of poor quality your not looking at a cheap repair. Plus many shift kits involve drilling or modding the valve body in some way so its not something you can undo later if you don't like it.

And yes there fine on daily driver they just make it shift a little faster and a little harder

The important part are the accumulator springs. Removing them (like the article suggests) results in super quick but very harsh shifts. Since this is your DD, you can leave the springs in. You'll get the same fast shifting but wont be neck-snapping
