My car has an automatic transmission.

TransGo makes a manual shift conversion kit for the 4L80-E. This shift kit installs inside the valve body and turns the 4L80-E into a purely mechanical transmission so no computer at all is required. This kit will require vacuum from a pump and a restricter valve from something like a 6.5 or 6.2 chevy diesel with a 4L80-E transmission. This kit will make the 4L80-E into a manual shift transmission. If you desire automatic shifting, you can use an external programmable controller and these controllers are readily available in the aftermarket for custom work such as you are describing. Baumann, TCS, PCS Controller, TCI, and Compushift are reported to be vendors of these controllers but there are probably others. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
