Its a 4sdp auto manufactured by Aisin AW, formerly known as Aisin-Warner and incorporating designs from BorgWarner. It's model #A44DE. It has electric lock-up.
Its a fairly nice tranny IMHO. Held up well under the GV. In the 16V Kick though, it went to 5.12 R&P gears, leaving little wiggle room for larger tires. In the GV it had the same internal gears, but had 4.88 R&Ps as the motor put out more HP and the taller gears helped with the road RPMs.
I know of no shift kits for it.
