Torque Converter Lockup 700R4, Automatic Operation

Hey guys, and gals! Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the Superior/Fairbanks Torque Converter Lockup kit. I talked to the guys at PATC and they said it just senses through pressure when to take the lock up out. I know there are TONS of kits out there to do this, and tons of guys that just wire it up to a switch. I don't want to have one more thing to remember while driving, so i wonder if this kit is any good or if someone has a diagram of how they wired it up for automatic operation. The vehicle is a 91 chevy Truck 2wd, converted to run all carb, it did have cruise at one point so im sure the brake pedal is the four prong style. Any help would be great thanks!

Lockup Info >>

Superior/Fairbanks K013 kit is just a few Brass fittings, wire & a 4th Pressure switch. It Lockups up the TCC after the 4th gear shift. Unlocks with 4-3 downshift & Brake Pedal depression. Can be annoying if used without a Vacuum switch or Toggle switch for manual control/operation around town.
