Has anyone done this? I have a '00 24v and I'd like to have a manual lockup, so I can lock it in 2nd as well! 

So I don't have to come screaming up all the hills in my area, sounding like I'm doing 120mph :lmao:

Pros, cons, and whatnot.

A stock 47RE valve body won't lock in 1st or manual 2nd. You'll need valve body mods to make that happen.

Locked 2nd doesn't drop the RPMs as much as you might think. I've had Jon work his magic on my VB and when locking in 2nd it maybe drops the RPMs 500 +/- a few. Mainly comes in handy if towing up a slow grade and you're looking to keep the trans temp down by keeping the TC locked, or vice versa, coming down a similar grade.

If you're locking the converter in 2nd, make sure it's manual 2nd to prevent a locked 2-3 shift. A stock 47RE valve won't lock in manual 2nd.

I never did mod the valve body. Thought about tig welding, jb weld and just didnt do it. 

 

I'd like to lock second with break switch to unlock while towing 10k machine stop light to stop light. 3rd wouldnt ve needed then.
