CAGS defeat - more than just CAGS?

Ever since I've defeated CAGS, I've noticed that reverse doesn't get locked out anymore - at any speed.. Grinded it twice while flipping it over into 5th.. Is this just the price I pay, and I'll get used to it as I get used to the tranny???

BTW, last night I hit 500 miles. I did my first WOT start from a dead stop. OH MY GOD. The only word I could think of while I was trying to catch my breath afterwords was TERRIFYING. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif Goddamn, I love this car.

I haven't noticed this on mine - then again I don't think I'm going to try moving the lever into reverse while moving to see if I have a problem...
Get a Kirban or B&M shifter and you will not mistake 5th for reverse. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

That much difference, huh? I have noticed the shifter in my '95 S-10 feels much nicer than this one.. Maybe I should do that!!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

That is an interesting question. Does Cags effect anything but 1st to 4th? I had a Cags in my SS and the trans went out at 9000 miles. When trans was rebuilt did not reinstall cags and had no more problems- coincedence?? I'm not risking it this time, I just let it sing to 2500...
dimer, try to find someone in your area with an aftermarket shifter and try it, but to answer your questions yes a BIG difference. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

I agree with MDZ06... some people have said it's tough in stop & go traffic... BS.. I leave it in 1st until the CAGS light goes out... NO MATTER WHAT. I've had 5 months of driving this beast ((WAY too much of it in the sh*tty Seattle area traffic) and I have NEVER had the CAGS force me into 4th. Non-issue.


Is there any chance you put the CAGS on the wrong solenoid? There is a reverse block out solenoid that may appear to be identical to the CAGs solenoid. Your symptoms indicate that you may have put the CAGS plug in the reverse block-out plug. Check it out. I had a similar problem when disabling the CAGs on my Trans Am.

Mine is stock but I could cram reverse while hunting for 5th before I got used to the shifter. If there is a lockout it is ineffective.
