Always Torque Converting

My little trick if you don't want to wait for the car to warm up and you only have full lock up (like me). Just wire the TC directly to 12v (you don't want it always on though, it'll kill battery) and it'll kick in regardless of ECT,

Engine Coolant Temperature.

Engine Coolant Temperature. That's why I said for cars with full lock up only, besides, this is disabling ecu control of the transmission, my stock ecu also prevents it if the thermostat ain't open.

Would this be hard on it in

Would this be hard on it in any way?
I was thinking of wireing mine up to a toggle switch or somthing but was afraid of forgetting and leaving it on.
Currently its not hooked up at all, killer on mileage.

Hasn't done **** to mine, *shrug*

Anyway, mine is pressure activated, so even if I always give it power it only kicks in when the speed is high enough.

I'd rather replace my engine coolant sensor. On my car it starts to go bad and then completly dies. If I replace it, it will go into overdrive sooner and waste less fuel.
