TC lockup questions

So I just installed a home made lockup switch and I have a few questions. My setup is really basic, just a splice in, to a switch to form a ground. I didn't do the really extensive Guzzle method. If I keep the TC locked up under 1000 rpm (below aprox 33mph) it makes my overdrive light flash, it will go off if I unlock it and drive a short distance. Is this hurting my comp? My other question is if I am wide open and I lock this thing up is it going to hurt my TC? Should I just invest in a triple disc to replace my stocker now before I get a better chip? I plan on getting a BTS valve body next if that is anything to consider. Thanks alot.

The od light turning on is fine you did everything right i have the same setup, My understanding from others on this site is locking it up does nothing but good i believe your fine.

If youre gonna go wot, then lock it as soon as you hit 1800 rpms in first and go from there. Your light will flash until you slow down and go down thru the gears.

If you are locking the TC before the PCM tells it to, it will make the OD light flash.
