Think CAGS is already disabled?

I just bought an '04 6sp GTO this weekend. I thought I fully understood CAGS, but my 2nd gear is not completely blocked at any RPM. Meaning, I can shift into 2nd or 3rd whenever I want, but the shifter is 'coaxed' to the 4th gear position.

On a friend's TA, 2nd seems to be physically blocked. You can NOT shift into 2nd under the predetermined RPM.

I am wondering if the original owner has already installed the eliminator, or if the GTO does not act the same as the Vettes and TAs from the factory.?.?

Thanks.

This is my third CAGs-equipped car in a row. It works pretty much the same way my previous two worked, but I will say that CAGs in this car is more forgiving. I tripped it all the time in my '94 Z28 and my '01 Corvette; not so much in the GTO. I don't know if the parameters are different or what, but I just don't encounter the forced 1-4 shift nearly as much.

It's almost like you have to hold it around 1200 before mine turns on
the light for cags, but I do like it better than my 95 z, it was a pain,
so I installed the eliminator, but I dont need to in the GTO it's much
more flexable.
