    it downshifts the trannsmission, i personally reccomend to run one, not sure about damage, but im sure it isnt good. goto the junkyard or parts store and git one, cant be to expensive, and if it is, it is worth it.

    700R4 yes you have to run one. It's not a Down shift cable on those transmissions. It's a throttle position sensor and it governs how the transmission is going to shift and when and how hard.
    Th350 it can run without out it but you will loose your kick down feature but shouldn't really hurt it unless your into full throttle all the time, then the tranny can't downshift and will hold too high a gear. If your easy on it it will be fine.
