I am new to the ls world, but I am loving it. Go v8s. And v6's. No 1.8 L stuff. Anyways, when I use the sport shift on my 2002 ls, It won't go into 1st gear, on the digital screen it only goes down to 2. The tranny shifts just fine, is it normal for all these cars, or is there something wrong with it?

Normal for the 1st gen. It's a government fuel economy thing. Floor it to get to first.

Yes, a gen 1 thing (00-02). Getting it past 60% throttle at low speed will give you 1st gear access until you come to a stop again. A tune can give you full time access
