It will only force the gear change when it bounces of the limiter. And your not going to make any power up there anyway. So just put the shifter in 3rd and rev the tits off it.

I'm sure the dyno operator will know what to do anyway.

Disconnect the trans electrical connector will send it into limp home mode locking second or third with the gear stick, not sure if this can damage the box on a dyno tho, it is meant to get you home or to the dealer in the event of an electrical (read solenoid) fault inside the box.

disconnecting the box will work or most places just use efilive V4 and an aldl cable to command the ecu to hold 3rd gear while on the dyno

That is, if you transplanted the 4L60e with the motor.
Not sure howto with a VP box or what have you?
