    Yes, as long as you swap over to a manual lockup converter it will work without the computer.

    The only Full Manual Valve Body that I am aware of is built by a guy name Stoney and is very pricy. Do you know of another for the 4L80E?

    Actually, I just remembered that TransGo makes a Full Manual Kit for the 4L80E that is about $250.00 and there are about seven different aftermarket computers available from $800 to $1200. I think the best are the CompuShift ($1200) and the TCI ($900) and I would stay away from the Jet unit. The one that Stoney makes is the only Reverse Manual Valve Body I know of.
