I imagine that would do it!

Either that, or wire up a separate torque converter lock switch.

IIRC it requires the relay and is more involved because of the convertor unlocking when the brakes are applied.

It's been many moon since I put any thought into auto mods since I'm a handshaker guy now, but I believe you can just wire up a toggle switch to lock/unlock the TC. No relay, no worries about unlocking when the brakes are applied as you tap into the wire that controls the TC lock up and run it to a switch. Guys would test it out by throwing the switch with the truck at idle and if it died, they knew they did it right.
I'm a government employee though, so your mileage may vary! I'm not real skookum on wiring or on anything with the auto since I quit paying attention to auto trans mods when I sold my 99 F250 back in 2010.
