Remember reading something about this; I think it required a re-program of something in the dash. I didn't see anything on a search here, but you may try LS1 GTO forum- -

Funny, I had a Grand Am that had that feature, years ago. GM got slammed by some major car rags about "telling" people when to shift. Now people want it.

You can buy the "skip shift eliminator" that gets rid of the 1:4 shift.

You have to send your cluster to him to get it programed. I haven't got around to it yet b/c it's my daily driver.

that's what i was thinking too...that you had to send it in. that sucks because mine is my daily driver too. do you think that would be something that the dealership would be able to handle?

I doubt it. Or at least I've never heard of them doing it, b/c I'd be the first in line.

Hmm..will the car startup without the cluster being in the dash?. I can just cruise along and not pass the slow moving cars for a week while i'm without the cluster.
