OK ....and to answer your original question: Yes you will need the cable

Russ Weaver

yea it should be a c6 and this transmition is very sticky you have to run it for like five minutes in each gear befor it will shift to the next gear the last shift is at 70 mphs

well the first thing you should do is smell the tranny fluid on the dip stick .. If it's bright red with a slight oily smell your probly ok there ... If it smells like a burnt electrical circuit or is orange or brown colored you need to get it out of there and change the filter also ...
