4r100 manual shift

Other than the PCS controller which is expensive and seems complicated to use is there any way to make the 4r100 manually controlled? There is a company that makes a tap shiftier for the early Allison transmissions so they can be manually shifted I don't see why something like that can't be made for our transmissions since they are also electronically controlled. I have thought about doing a 6 speed conversion, but I like the auto better in some situations they are allot quicker 0-60 I would just like to be able to control it manually.

I would think that a chip tuner could work with you to make it full manual. best part about that would be having manual in whatever tune you need it, but retaining automatic shift in the daily driver tune.

The reason the PCS controller is so complicated is to avoid accidental downshifting to 5000 rpm, lockout of 3rd gear starts (cooks the tranny fast), torque converter lock up control, etc.

I think the Allison tranny is designed for optional manual control from the factory so it's just a matter of tapping switches into the existing controller. The ford PCM didn't bother to provision for something like that because it was never going to be a selling pointless for new trucks.
