From what i know on a th-350, the cable does not control line pressure. Only kicks it down into passing gear. I would set the cable at full tension when you are at WOT or when you want it to drop into a lower gear.

Siggy is correct on the th-350 the cable controls passing gear. You do not need to even hook it up. If you do decide to run it you should set it to be functional at wide open throttle....
