The biggest problem with this idea is that the kickdown (aka throttle valve ) linkage does not just trigger kick down. It's position is also one of the things that regulates part throttle upshift points and fluid pressures. A tranny without a properly connected and adjusted KD linkage will burn itself up in short order.
