would it be possible to build something that stops the kickdown function? i mean completely? so that if you want a lower gear you must select it? be interesting to be actually able to use anything close to WoT without it kicking down and screaming its tits off. with a 3.89 rear end it would be nice to feel what it could pull like in the right gear rather than revving heaps.

For people considering doing this - the thing to keep in mind in the wet is that problems arise when the transmission shifts while there's a fair bit of torque being put down - ie. 2-3 upshift can be particularly nasty. The solution is to drive the car somewhat differently to what you're used to with an auto - ie. I found that from experience I could pretty much predict when the trans was going to shift so made sure I backed off a tad at the right time - ie. use the accelerator in same way as for a manual change - the trans would shift immediately but I'd reduced torque so no nastiness - then I could feed power back in - but again being careful not to provoke a kickdown at the wrong time. The result is sort of like one of those automatic manual transmissions. Hope that makes sense?

Yes spliced in on the red wire doesnt matter which 2 pins you use on the pot, as long as you get a centre and an outside one.
