Lock Up Torque Convertor

I was curious if we can disable the lock up torque convertor on auto transmission by cutting a wire or unplug a connector on the transmission, I use to have a GM and on those cars you could disconnect a plug on the transmission and the lock up wouldn`t come on and the car had more power on the freeway for passing and quick accelaration without having to use the kick down all the time.

It's not designed to run like that all the time. I'd expect the torque converter to burn up if you did. Not to mention the reduction in MPG.
