On my old Formula I used a resistor instead of paying $30 for the skip shift eliminator, but I do not remember the resistor value. Does any one know what it is? Would like to go the same route on my 06 GTO.

Don't know anything about a resistor, but the cags eliminator for the GTO is nowhere near 30.00. I think they are somewhere in the 12-16 dollar range.

I have heard about installing a resistor from Radio Shack for about $4. But, I think the skip-shift eliminator wiring harness is a much easier and cleaner way to go. Shouldn't cost more that $20 and it's a 5 minute plug n play job.

The skip eliminator is a resistor in a fancy package. A pack of four resistors at radio shack is fifty cents. I ran one on my formula for six years, I would rather not pay twenty or thirty bucks for something that is the cost of a pack of gum. If I can come up with the resistor value I will come back and share. Sorry if this sounds kind of negative, it is not meant too.

The resistor works just fine you could have found some info on LS1 tech also. And SLP sales the CAGS elimnator for $30, I would have went the resistor route if I did not buy the programmer. To tell the truth I rarly saw mine come on before I tuned it out.

I did the Radio Shack resistor in my Goat 3 years ago. It was my first mod. After I pushed the resistor into the connector end, I capped it off with a thumbsized rubber plug, then sealed it with a small amount of RTV. Still works great.:cool

Bonus point: Can anyone tell me what RTV stands for? No internet cheating!!:D

Room Temp Vulcanizing something.:D
Can you tell me what WD-40 stand for?:D Sorry for the hijack this was tempting.

Jackpot!
WD-40.......I always thought that it was named after the amazing chemicals used to create said product.

That was the type of BS answers I'd give in high school; never worked.:D

Just installed my Cags eliminator....

...I got lazy and bought the one from PFYC. I did the same thing to my '92 Corvette when I had it. Well worth the money.:cool
