    Actually, a combination of both activates the skip shift.

    Directly from the manual:
    The engine coolant temperature is greater than 170 degrees F
    + you are going 15 to 20 mph (24 to 32 km/h)
    + you are at 35 percent throttle or less.

    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.
    I called the local tuners around here and they have only done like 8 ls1's they said so im kinda skeptical about taking it to em

    From what it looks like on mine, its just basically a adapter
    1. unplug
    2. hook to your sensor deal
    3. then hook to your tranny
    From what i got out of it
