TUNE and Skip shift eliminator

Does a tune void the motor warrenty?? and with this skip shift eliminator that SLP is selling, does that mean that when driving the car i have to shift from 1st to 2nd and so on... i cant skip gears. how is that possible is it computer controlled?? any help is great

Normally with the manual for better MPG, you will be forced to go from 1st to 4th (at low speeds). WIth the eliminator, you can drive as normal (it doesn't force you to do anything) ..

For the Tune .. yes, it could void that warrenty if it is shown to be the cause of failure ..

Here is a good Read:

Not sure if all of this is still the same, but the spirit of it sure is

The skip shift eliminator will allow to shift however you want. The reason GM Put it in to begin with is to help with gas mileage (so we didn't have to pay some sort of gas guzzler tax).

The manual transmission that comes with the Camaro will force you to shift from 1st to 4th at low rpms. The skip shift eliminator will allow you to shift whenever you want to. (skip shift eliminator is an aftermarket product, it does not come with the car)

SLP makes good stuff. They were actually the folks that helped with the 4th gen production SS I believe. Someone may have more history.

Here is a little history:

1996 saw minor mechanical revisions, as well as small power gains from the new OBD II-compliant engine controls. All base model Camaros were now equipped with the 3800 series II. V8 models still came with the 5.7L LT1 engine. The dual catalytic converters required by OBD-II resulted in lower restriction and a mild power boost to 285 hp (213 kW) and 325 lb·ft (441 N·m) of torque. Two option packages also returned: the RS (last seen in 1992), an appearance option for the V6 model, and the SS (last seen in 1972), a performance and appearance package for V8-powered cars. The SS cars, which were modified by Street Legal Performance (SLP) through contract with GM, were the highest factory performance Camaros offered at the time and included a functioning hood scoop and new five-spoke 17 in (43 cm) x 9 in (23 cm) wheels. The new wheel and tire package on the SS resulted in better handling and braking compared to the Z28. Also available this year for the V6 model was the Y87 package, which included a Zexel-Torsen LSD, better tires, dual exhaust tips, 4 wheel disk brakes, and a sportier steering ratio.
