The pressure control cable or Bowden cable as it's called around here is responsible for shift points more than shift quality. More slack means earlier shifts, more tension means later shifts. With absolute slack or the cable disconnected, your car will likely be in 4th gear by 30 mph. I can't imagine it would have a more dramatic effect than just going lighter on the pedal, and in my case I'd compensate with a heavier foot, but maybe you're really disciplined.
