The transmission computer will be completely non-functional after the swap so you can remove it and snip/ the harness that runs down to the transmission.

When you remove the automatic shifter assembly you will find some wires under there that will need to be reconfigured so that your reverse lights work properly and so the car will think it's in "park" all the time (otherwise the car won't start).
