Transmission electrical wiring for Turbo 350? and Turbo 400?

HI guys. I am a member of 2nd Gen Camaro owners group, as well as NastyZ.com. I have a 1972 R/S, and a project 1970 Camaro.

I have some questions on my latest Fbody project .

I just recently swapped a whole drivetrain from a 1970 Formula 400, into my 1970 Esprit.

The esprit came with a Turbo 350 auto trans, and had an electrical connection on the passenger side of the trans.
- Can anyone tell me what this wiring plug is for?

Also, I did swap out the stock Turbo 400 wiring for the kickdown on the gas pedal side.
- But how do you wire up the kickdown switch to the turbo 400 trans?
Any help much appreciated.

The switch below the cooling lines is a TCS switch Transmission Controlled Spark . Allowed the transmission to disengage the spark advance when in high gear . The 400 kickdown is a 12volt B+ supply No relays required . The wire simply dumps the clutch fluid supply solinoid inside the pan allowing the next lower clutch to take over . You need a contact switch on the throttle when in the wide open position .
