BTR Manual override

Has anybody figured out a way to convert the 4 spd auto in the E series Falcons into a full manually shifted auto.
In other words like the new BA sequential shift, that only shifts up when you wont it to not before or after you wont it to?

If

Ok the late model electronic gearboxes shift gears by using simple on off solenoids same object that controls injectors.If you got hold of a wiring diagram and disconnected the shift solenoid from the computer and then figured out which and when to change then its just a matter of supply constant power and switching the earth.More complex in pratice but the basics is there.

Thumbs up manual override auto

Sounds good guys.
This sounds like a good project for my EF Falcon, which only needs that part of the auto to be sorted out now that it has the shifting sorted.
It frustrates me that in drive it changes from first to second too late @ 5800-6000 and misses the max torque peak.
