I've had my V for two weeks and that was all I could stand. Yesterday I installed a CAGS eliminator to get rid of that sorry skip-shift feature. Now the car is much more enjoyable to drive. I don't know how anyone can live with that CAGS system.

Get a shift kit in there too ... the difference is incredible ...

I installed a UUC, but there are other options that yield the same results ... :highfive:

Other than the shorter shifts of the UUC, does it have any other advantages? Is the shifting smoother and crisper or does it feel sloppy like the OEM shifter?

Thats the whole package pretty much ... shorter, faster, crisper

Smoother is a judgement call ... it is a little notchy (for lack of a better term), but I like the feel better. More like a sports car than a family sedan ...

UUC, B&M, whatever. After a CAGS eliminator, it's a must have. :)

Yah, big modder weighing in here. CAGS was my first mod, too; then supercharger and exhaust. But in retrospect, if I were in your shoes and had it to do over the UUC shifter would be my second mod. Might be the best bang for the buck in terms of driving enjoyment. I haven't missed third gear since I bought it!

Denniscars thinks it's too notchy/mechanical feeling, but then Dennis doesn't like license plate frames... :rolleyes:

The UUC will prepare you to fully enjoy the Stealth tune.

Law, good to see you around again. :wave:

You have gotten on a runaway bobsled ride to mod hell! I am just beginning the mod journey as well. :thumbsup: I'm still envious of the S/C guys on the forum.
