TransGo Jr for my Allison 1000 or not?

I am going to install a MagHytec deep pan on my Allison 1000 and have seen the TransGo Jr shift kits available. They claim to be a smart, simple upgrade.
I dont have any plans on ever having this truck beyond 500HP (its my daily driver) but want to make sure I prolong the life of the trans. Is a TransGo Jr worth the time and effort? Thanks in advance...

It will allow you to hold about 20-30 hp over the 90 rwhp. But will not be enough to handle 500.

dont see a 5 or 6 speed in your sig...twat do you have?

5 speed is not worth it because you have to remove trans to install shift kit..

It's in the 06-07.5 section, so I assumed 6 speed. But we know what happens when you assume.

Yeah if its a 5 speed don't bother, but if you have a 6 speed then it's rather easy. But just a transgo jr. wont hold the 500hp
