Just adjust the kickdown linkage by 'lengthening' it a bit and it will be more sensitive to the throttle. Adjust further by trail and error until it feels right. If the linkage is too short it will not kickdown at all and it will upshift to 2nd and 3rd gear too early. Conversely if the linkage it too long it will upshift late and kickdown too quickly.
If you have a cable instead of a linkage, the same idea applies.
