4o60E transmission help

I have a 92 chevy p/u with the throttle body fuel injection that came with a V6. Last week i droped in a 350 out of a 99 Tahoe.

Here is my problem.
About 4000 RPMs the engine leans way out, not getting enough gas. So I want to bolt on a carb and call it a day, but:

I have the 4o60E electronic transmission and I need to find a way to bypass the TV cable and the other sensors (I don't know what they are, can you tell me?)

I heard there was a kit you can buy to fix everything to where I want it. What does it consist of and how much work does it take?

As you can tell I have no idea what I am talking about so any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance
-Sean S.

For your lean problem, just get a 350" computer (at least the chip). That should help with that problem. You can get a custom chip burned that would account for all mods you've done - that would be best.

Take a look at TBIChips.com for info on a custom chip. Also, PCM For Less would be a great place to order from. Reasonable price too!!

'93 was the first year for the 4L60e trans. The '92 has the 4L60. There is NO way to get around the TV cable. Nothing to 'get around' anyways....just make sure it's adjusted correctly!!

www.bowtieoverdrives.com has some great info over there. TV made EZ is one of their links that show you how to adjust everything. You can also order all the correct pieces to make your setup work smoothly!!

Thanks for your help, but I'm set on the carburator becuase the TBI is only a 500cfm throttle body.

My last quesiton, is how do i hook up the 'converter lock out' sensor and get it to work? Can I hook it up to a switch and just turn it on and off when I get on and off the freeway?

Thanks again

There are kits you can buy to get it done automatically. I believe Summit carries kits from TCI, B & M, etc.

You could hook the lock-up to a toggle switch. I've heard of guys using the brake switch to trigger it to the off position.
