There is no way of manually overriding the system. The shifting adaptation occurs within the 6 different driving conditions to optimize the shift quality of the transmission.The control unit has the ability to watch the engagement of the transmission shift members to determine if the shift can be optimized by varying fill pressures, rates and timing etc.. The more that a specific driving condition is repeated during a shift, the more the transmission can continue to fine tune the shift.This is why mostly everyone states that the transmission adapts itself to the driver. It is better stated that the transmission adapts itself to the driving conditions in which it is driven. If you want to "optimize" the transmission to a different style of driving, drive that way more often. It does not lose the other adaptations that it has performed while driven another way.
