Does the kickdown switch operate the same way as the B switch?

I am considering splicing a momentary switch into one or the other to control the FGS at takeoff? Furthermore does this even sound possible?

I know there are companies that specialize in modules that allow FGS all the time but is that offered for a 300E with an L6, or will I need to have the valve body modified?

i have not looked at the wiring on the kick down switch. all i know is it turns on while you have the peddle smashed to the floor.

if there are just two wires, i bet it would be easy to add a switch to make it start in 1st gear, but then you would have to shut it off after you were moving or it would probably just stay in 1st gear.
