    1 to 4 eliminator

    Alrighty. So i am sick of forcing my TA into 2nd gear afterevery take off.
    So there are three eliminators i have found on LMPerformance... SLP being the cheapest. Does it matter which one i get? and will i even need it if i get an ls7 clutch kit with a Tick cylinder?
    Thanks.

    just wait until you get a tune for a mod that you have done , such as headers or a cam or an intake and when you get the tune tell the guy to eliminate the 1st to 4th skip shift. otherwise you are buying something now that you could get done when you get a tune.

    if you do headers , you really need to go get a tune.. and that tune will probably cost somewhere between 150 and 300 depending on who you use. when you do this tune the tuner can delete that 1st to 4th bull crap that gm uses in the car for gas mileage ,, just ask him,,,, he can also delete the air stuff and rev limiter, and some other things he will change. so i mean if you plan on doing a tune one day, then why pay now for that skip shift eliminator now? that is just my opinion

    How much are those eliminators-less than $30? Go ahead and get one and resell it for half the price, you can probably find one used on ebay.

    Then just wait.

    And I would recommend avoiding JAMMING it into second in the meantime.

    4.11 gears play the same role as the skip shift

    Just meant that the RPM goes up a lot quicker off the line so the skip shift never engages
