If it's a 4L60E I'm pretty sure you just tell the computor not to do that. If it's a 4L60 you probably need a manual valve body.

Yes. EFI Live, or HP Tuners.

Those are the two most popular software companies. You should have local speed shops, or dyno facilities that can do this for you, you can send out your computor for reprogramming, or you can buy the software and related pieces and do it yourself.
