What type of wire to be used in automatic transmission oil

I'm on the final stage of rebuilding my 700-R4. My lockup wiring is very brittle, bending it about 90 degrees will cause the sheathing to break. I am wondering what type of wire is recommended for use inside the transmission. Is heatshrink OK to use in transmission oil?

Also I have a temp switch currently in my trans. From what I have read if the fluid gets above a certain temperature the switch will close and cause the torque converter to lockup in an attemp to cool the transmission down. Should I keep this in the circuit or is it OK to bypass? FWIW, TCC will be controlled via ECU.
