If it is an E4OD it's computer controlled. It could be a C6, that's vacuum controlled. The C6 has a vacuum cannister on the right side of the trans. It has a vacuum line that goes to the intake manifold.

Your bigger problem is that the bolt pattern on the 460 and the diesel are different. The trans won't bolt up, and the bellhousing is not removeable.
