    Is it tuned?

    Alright so i bought my 98 z28 m6 last year.
    The skip shit is turned off and the governor as well
    Does it require a tune to turn off the skip shift and what not?

    yes..or you can get a thing to plug in that eliminates it...but the usually is getting it tuned...and if your governor is upped then yes you got yourself a tune

    burying the speedo isnt shit really. the stock limiter is about 162-68. so you will have to have that speedo buried for a long time.

    I have heard this as well, in fact, it takes a GPS device to get a good idea of how fast your going.

    There's a plug and play eliminator for the skip shift, as well as a cheap alternative too, aside from tgetting the car tuned.

    These may help to see if you have the cheap version, or the $30 version skip shift. (if neither is present, I would assume you have a tune)

    I went and talked to the lady who sold it to me just now.
    Her husband is the one who drove it and everything but he has been in prison which is why the car got sold.
    But she will be giving me a call when she gets a phone call from him either today or tomorrow i kind of home it doesn't have a tune so i can just just do the one i want.

    You can go out and look at it right now and see if has the skip shift elimintor. I guess even though it may have the eliminator installed, that doesn't mean he didn't get it tuned.

    Where are you at where you can drive 160+ MPH for 30 seconds? Seems kind of foolish to me.

    When I bought my car, the skip-shift was off. I had mine tuned and I found out the previous owner had installed an eliminator. I pulled out the eliminator and tossed it as the tune disabled it...and it was burnt.

    It's programmed into the computer at the factory to keep you from shifting from 1st to 2nd at speeds under...I THINK...40mph. Any speeds under than that, the computer prohibits you shifting from 1st to 2nd and instead, you shift 1st to 4th. It's to conserve fuel. BAH!!!

    And on the GTO and I think Vette, there is a light that reads "1->4" on the dash when you shift.

    It's a range of % of throttle while in first gear. Somewhere around 25-35% activates the skip shift.

    That doesn't mean your car wasn't tuned, I think only tuner will be able to tell you if it is or isn't though.
