Just bought mine on your Amazon.com store! Thanks. However, the instructional video: where underneath the car exactly is the harness, and will I be able to do it without a car lift?

Also, are there any other draw backs or features lost by installing this?

I have the same type device on my 06 GTO and this is the best $20 you will ever spend.

The harness where it plugs into is centered between the 2 rear wheels. This can be done without a car lift, just requires more crawling without. The lift also made it easier for the instructional video to be filmed. There are no draw backs or features lost by installing this skip shift. It can easily be removed and restored to factory within 30 seconds.

Please help. For life of me I cannot find the harness under the car so I can install the CAGS adapter. The bottom of my C7 does not look anything like the video in this forum. Is the video of a different car?

I'm able to squeeze myself from the back of the car all the way to in between the rear wheels, but I cannot find it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Nope, that's a 2014 Corvette. Are you looking directly between the rear wheels? That's where you should be looking. You have to reach your hand to the top of the transmission. It's a bit hard to see.

I just received my kit today, and found there is really no easy way to do it without a lift. So I'll have to wait until it's in the shop. The position of the socket seems to be forward of the rear wheels -- not directly between them. So you're not going to be able to get to the right location by just crawling around under the car.

I agree, I had to ask the guy at the tire place to let me sneak under the car when it was on the lift. It takes 30 seconds. But there is no way, if the car is on the ground, to crawl under the car and get your head there unless your extremely small and not claustrophobic.

But it does work perfectly.

It can be done being I did it this last weekend. I just jacked the rear up with my floor jack as high as it would go and put jack stands for safety and just layed on my back. Was very easy. I could reach all away around the tranny with both hands. The connection sits up high on the tranny towards the front of the vehicle on drivers side.

Exactly what I did. Found the easiest access, after using a rear jack and jack stands was to slip between the left wheel and the jack stand set on my jack pad. The connector was directly above where I was laying. Was somewhat difficult to get both hands up there to unlatch the clip and pull at the same time, but as you said only took a few minutes. Had to be sure the car was cool since you’re close to the exhaust pipe.

My C7 is a stickshift this time. Coming from an auto trans just what is this 1-4 problem? Does it mean you cannot shift directly to 4 from 1 (to avoid additional shifts in between)?. Or is it something else?

Have had my CAGS eliminator for a couple weeks now and haven't gotten around to installing it yet.

Then again, I haven't had the car ONCE enforce CAGS yet anyway. ......

My friend has had is C7 for 4 months with over 2000 miles of almost all city driving and never had the 1-4 shift problem arise at all except for two times when he was doing his best to cause the problem. drove over 30 minutes around town trying to force it one day and it never did do it so he isn't buying a kit for his. I have a C7 coming and already have bought the eliminator but probably won't install mine either since it is a virtual non issue.

Default Is GM using a new plug?

I received my kit this week and got my new Z51 in yesterday. Installing the CAGS today I encountered a problem. The CAGS defeat plug snaps into the transmission just fine. However the black protective cover for the factory wiring harness does not snap onto the harness. Inside the protective cover there is a black "tooth" right between the two metal pins. Without modifying it there is no way it will snap onto the factory plug. Anyone else have this issue?
