Icon10 Q about 3.0 switch mod

has anyone here done the switch mod?

I figure instead of having a gas pedal, you could just have a switch you could flip on that would select any arbitrary throttle position so the engine revs to 3,000rpm. It'll stay at that rpm as the torque converter sorts out its job and brings the truck from a dead stop to speed, then the transmission can change gears to adjust to driving conditions.

does the 4.0 SOHC make power the same way this engine does?
