Here's what you do; sell the trans brake valve body to a drag racer, and modify a "stock" valve body into a manual shift unit. All you need to do, is take a 1/4 inch long section of 1/4 inch copper tubing, and use that to block the 1-2 shift valve open(the copper tube would go in FIRST when assembling the 1-2 shift valve). Don't worry about the modulator, or the throttle pressure/kickdown. A Trans-Go shift kit also has a "coil of wire" it uses to block the 1-2 valve open, a drill bit(s) to enlarge the plate passages, and you'd also get the gaskets and springs needed to do the valve body mods.
