727 Torqueflite - throttle rod hook up

I just had my 727 TF rebuilt and I installed a B&M street/strip shift kit. Do I need to hook up the throttle bar or can I do without it? I prefer shifting manually which will include down-shifting also.

Specs:
85' Dodge Ram D100
451 BB Stroker
2500 stall
3:55 rear

Yes you will need it hooked up. If you install the manual valve body kit you can go without it.

Would this be due to regulation of pressure?

Yes... It raises the line pressure of the trans in accordance to throttle opening. With it unhooked the trans thinks it is in park when you want to chirp second gear .

With the throttle wide open adjust the rod to where the detent arm on the trans is at full movement against it`s stop.
