The last time I drove it I noticed that under light accelleration the 2-3 shift seems to have 2 stages. It's not a solid, single thump like the 1-2 shift.

What are the chances that the rate of lifter bleed down can be altered by using a different viscosity of motor oil? And, if so, what are the drawbacks?

It's kind of hard to tell much from that thread because of the differences in heads and you are using nitrous. I'm going for 10's n/a and our car makes freakish power for what's in it.
