Question Monitoring transmission pressure

How bad would it be to drive around with pressure gauges hooked up permanently to the transmission (all taps)?
I seem to remember reading in a Ford manual that "transmission failure could result" because it "may affect shift quality".
Is it really (potentially) that bad or were they just covering their asses?

Why would it affect shift quality? Installing a gauge is just like installing the plug that is normally there back in the port...they are both "dead ends" and will not let fluid pressure escape.

My AOD is about to have a sender shoved right up its tv pressure port as a permanent fixture. No harm in doing it as long as the senders remain in tact.

I bent a cheap 100psi gauge on my t.v. port when goosing the throttle If you permanantly install a gauge make sure it's rated for 500 psi spikes without damage. An electronic sender would be ideal.
