    Or like I did on a frost covered hill with the wife on board. Damn thing got me all tangled up with what I was doing and got me sideways. Had I made it into second like I was trying to do it would have been no problem.

    I will undoubtedly be looking into how to over-ride or program it out.

    Skip Shift is more than an irritant, could be a safety issue. Finally warm enough (for a day) to get under the car and install a Skip Shift Eliminator. Works great. Made a How To Install and included how to jack up the Corvette high enough for access for those new to DIY for the Vette.

    I've read that the version of the skip-shift that is found on the C-7 is not as intrusive as was the case for previous generations. In your opinion; True or not?

    I bought a CAGS (skip shift) eliminator kit from Zip Products... This kit includes two plugs. One to cap the solenoid (for weather protection) and one for the end of the harness that used to go to the solenoid (this one contains the resistor that simulates the solenoid for pacifying the computer). Not sure why the two plugs on the kit shown above are connected by the red wires... they aren't really required. Have not installed yet (too cold in garage, here in Wisconsin), assume all that will need to be done is to wire up the newly 'plugged' harness loose end, so it doesn't flop around and get on the exhaust pipe.

    Thanks Autoxal. Please let us know how this works out once your weather improves, and you can test it out. For $20, nice mod, and so simple to do.

    Hi, will a CAGS unit from a manual C6 work on the C7? I think it will so will plan to take it off my 2010 when traded in and let the next owner deal with the hassle!!! I also hope that the C6 NPP exhaust key fob bypass system I have will also work when my C7 Coupe when it arrives in (hopefully) April.

    I just bought one from SLP for $20, it said it worked on C5, C6, C7 and many others. It's tuned out on my ZO6, but tuning your C7 could void your warranty.

    Installed mine the other day (it warmed up to 65 for 1 day, tomorrow ice!) You’ll see from my How To Install doc at ( netwelding.com/Reports_Vette_Info.htm ) why they tied the two parts together –made it easier to tie the assembly and wires away from the exhaust. Unlike the C6, the C7 has insulation covers over the connectors and wires, both the temp sensor and skip shift wires are tied together. They also have a boss on the trans with a hole to tie the wires back from the exhaust pipe. I used two Nylon ties to keep the skip shift eliminator parts and wires away from the exhaust. I even made an extra insulation sleeve to cover the Skip Shift Eliminator (shown in photo.) Skip past the how to jack up car if you don't need that info.
