The torque converter locks up on its own. If you are looking at the place I think you are looking at for the info, the poster incorrectly states that the converter normally only locks up at WOT. This is simply not true. If your converter doesn't lock up during "normal" driving, something is wrong. Start off "normally", and pay close attention to the shifts. You should feel a shift from 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to overdrive, then one more "shift". This last "shift" is the converter locking up. The TQ mod is completely useless, and can easily cause driveability issues if you forget to turn it off when slowing down. The shift mod, on the other hand, I can see a use for. You can easily do one without the other.
