    Yes, it can. That's what this entire thread (& links within) is all about. But just because it's possible, doesn't mean it's the best option for every application.
    Electronic transmission control is best accomplished with the Terminator (LINK) or Dominator EFI (LINK). Which electronic transmission model do you have?

    I had that situation exactly and ended up putting a dedicated TPS on my accelerator pedal for the automatic transmission control. It was in no way tied in with the EFI. It has worked flawlessly for a few years now.

    Thanks Danny. From the thread, it is not clear that it can be done. With Both the Terminator & Dominator, they reference only GM compatibility on their webpage & the Terminator is AU$1300 more than I paid for the Sniper EFI, so changing it is not an option. I have a warm 289W with a Australian BTR 4 speed transmission to be installed. OK, that is good news that it can be done. My question is what do I need & how is it done?

    Thanks Stacked33. Any chance you could provide details on what you used to do this & how you went about this? Any photos would be appreciated. Cheers

    That ad is outdated. The Dominator ECUs can now control Ford transmissions too.

    UPDATE: The current V5 Dominator ECU electronic transmission control capability:
    GM 4L60E/5E with 1.75 2nd Gear (pre-2009)
    GM 4L60E/5E with 1.63 2nd Gear (pre-2009)
    GM 4L70E (2009+)
    GM 4L80E/5E
    Ford AODE
    Ford 4R70W ('92-'97)
    Ford 4R70W ('98-'03)
    Ford 4R70W (2003+)

    On the other hand, if you are stuck with an A4OD transmission, then having a remote TPS and an external controller is the only way to go (and also means you can use the "cheap" Sniper). I'd guess/believe/hope that any remote TPS intended for a Holley carb should be adaptable to a Sniper throttle body.

    This photo is all I have and it doesn't show it well. But your pedal setup is probably different anyway. I bought another of the same TPS sensors that the EFI used and fabricated the mounting. You just need it to be at a pivot point. Just run 5 volts input, a ground and the output (0-5V) to your TCU. I think my TCU is the Simple Shift too.

    Nice to see some conversation on this issue. There must be more than a handful of people using the Sniper with an electronic transmission. It seems there are multiple TPS sensors out there - just wondering if one 'fits' better than another, or if they all require some kind of custom mounting bracket or custom adaptation.

    In reading about the Dominator, I don't see much on transmission control. I understand it will control a 4R70W, but don't see any expanded explanation on the features. The Quick 4 from US Shift has VERY extensive features and adjustments. Maybe the Dominator is the same, but I haven't seen any literature on that.

    Download the free Holley V5 EFI software and look at the Transmission ICF (LINK).

    Thank you Danny. Which particular download is the manual for Dominator EFI?

    The instruction manuals are also in the EFI software download.

    EFI Software Help Information/Instructions:
    ‒ On the top Toolbar, click "Help" & "Contents". This opens all Help topics.
    ‒ When navigating the software, click "Help ?", drag it to any parameter and click again.
    ..This automatically opens the definitions for that specific parameter.
    ‒ Tuning information can be read by clicking the F1 key, when you're viewing any screen.

    Open the Holley EFI software "Help" Contents ("Help" drop down menu), and read "Step-By-Step Beginners Tuning".
    Ensure the EFI software is set to run as an "Administrator" (right click for Properties/Advanced). Set it and forget it.
