Here is what TCI has to say about vacuum modulators...
Like Poncho said, you need a few more mods to make your trans fully "manual". I hope you haven't hurt it by plugging the vacuum modulator...
Putting the shifter in 3rd gear, while sitting still, will do nothing. The trans only sees line pressure when the vehicle is moving. The line pressure needs to be at a certain point before the trans will up-shift to 2nd or 3rd. This is why it starts out in first and then up-shifts to 2nd. The trans will automatically downshift as you slow down so it is always in "first gear" when you start rolling.
