from the from the tranny. What became of this idea? Will it
hurt the tranny? I tried it this morning and I love the way
my tranny acts. Any long term damage?

The theory behind this is fine when under acceleration, however under light throttle applications and idling, this puts a lot of excess pressure on the shift solenoids, etc.
My car would not down shift when I manually moved the gear selector with the resistor out.
I drove with the resistor out for only a little bit. After plugging it back in, whenever I downshifted from D to 3 it would act a little weird and has done so ever since.
Some may not care to shift manually, but I did.
One of the guys on the legacycentral bbs was going to use a power resistor that was a little higher in resistance as to firm up shifts, but not totally remove the resistor from the system. He was also looking at trying to make a switch or something that would use the resistor when at idle, but shorted the circuit once you reached half throttle or something like that.
I'd plug it back in.
