Default 3800 series II with 4T65-E Tranny question

is there any way that i can wire a torque converter lockup switch into this transmission that anyone knows of? Also, i am curious as to if i can wire in some unit or something that allows me to hold the car in a gear to red line ( not that i intend to ). I use a B&M quicksilver with my car and i'm sick of the 'panic shifts' that the car does when i don't shift as it would like me to.

Billboost might have an idea about this. I seem to remember talking to him about TC control a while back.

You can trip it if you have a TCC relay in your fuse box. I forget which pin it is on the relay, but if you ground one of the pins it will trip the relay.

I've thought about doing this but never tried it.

Let us know how it goes.
