    No infact i unhooked my Com from my trans b/c it was lockin down the convertor and i just said fuk it i dont need it anyway and its shifted fine and doesnt lock down anymore so get less MPG but i can still go like 250miles on like 16-20 gals prob more but i never let the truck run outta gas so idk the mpg for sure. BTW i have a 700R4 and i think you should too! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif www.zombieoffroading.8m.net

    you can get a kit from painless wiring to make the tranny work on its own. its a lock up kit, cant remember what it comes with but it allows you to run a lockup tranny on a non lock up, or non computer setup.
