Has anyone installed the skip shift eliminator yet?

I'm just wondering if anyone has installed the skip shift eliminator yet, which brands people have used, how easy they are to install, and if any problems have been encountered. Several sources are are available for Corvette/Camaro LS3, and all look basically the same from brand to brand. Mine was about $20 from Adaptive Performance. Directions sound simple. I'm hoping to have my dealer put the car on their lift and install it before I take my first drive. I'm paying for 6 speeds and want access to them ALL the time.

supposed to eliminate by itself over 1800 revs. Doubt I'll keep it under 1800 often. If you get it and it works well, please repost.

I haven't heard anything yet, but from all the talk before about skipshift, oops I mean CAGS, that kit is the most expensive solution to this perceived problem. Older Camaros have had it blocked by a resistor that costs practically nothing and the majority of SS owners thus far haven't been driving mild enough to not activate it, or at least haven't admited to it

call my crazy, but I DON'T think the dealer will do that, they may tell you "it will void your warranty" or some like that.

If this is true then I really don't have anything to worry about. Can anyone confirm?

I've only activated it twice in almost 400 miles! Both times where pulling out of my street to the main road...

Shift at 2,000 rpms or more and you'll not notice it at all.

Can someone put links into this thread for the eliminator options?

it seems that it's starting to catch me everyone once and awhile to and it REALLY is beginning to make me angry. I like manuals for a reason...because I like to decide what gear the car should be in...

Anyone doing a tune or tweek in the ECM can eliminate the skip shift by making a small software change at the same time.
