Default How to know if I have separate TCM and PCM?

I've never liked the too-smooth transmission shifts, and learned about the mod to cut the wire from the TCM to the PCM for the Torque Management signal.

But I read that sometime during 2004, the TCM and PCM were combined into one unit, so the mod cannot be done.

How can I tell if I have the separate TCM and PCM or the combined unit?

I know I have the "next generation" engine controller they switched to during the model year, does this automatically mean I also have the "combined" TCM and PCM?

Is there any other way to get firmer shifts?
I looked into the TransGO Shift kit, but from what I've read, by 2004 model year, Chrysler already incorporated the changes the TransGo kit does.

You could look into having the PCM tuned...
