The valve body can be swapped out taking all the sensors with it out and swapped in a valve body from a performance shop like summit. Or replace the trans with an older unit that does not have the need for the computer module, Those would have to be any that bolt to the 350 and has the same tail and length for your drive shaft, also need the kick down cable.

I really do appreciate your help , and any other alternatives I will be sure to do research on them aswell.. thank you
