Don't find it to be a problem. If I'm going that slow it doesn't bother me for it to skip shift.

im so happy i have it installed,that 1st to fourth shift was lame

If you had an older Chevy with the skip shift you know this one in this new Camaro isn't really a problem at all. I rarely run into it. On my old C4, every damn time I took off almost. I see no need for the skip shift eliminator in mine but to each his own. Just wind it out more in 1st.

I paid for six forward speeds and I want to chose when and where I use them. I installed my skip shift eliminator on delivery day +3 and have been "permagrining" (Donna - is this a proper tense?) ever since.

The 1st - 4th came up with me a few times and it just a pain in the @ss when you don't realize it and you can't get it into 2nd. I installed it and it works PERFECT. I love it!!:thumbsup:

To me it just sucks to have the skip-shift in a car like this. If you do, do the 1st-4th shift it sounds like you cant shift especially when you have ARH LT's and a Borla exhaust

I love mine. 1-4 shift is very lame. You will find others that say its not and that they jsut "give it some gas" and it goes away. I, for one, live in a small town with stop lights and pedestians so sometimes I need to drive slow and I hate when I am forced to go to 4th at low speeds and lag my engine. First to second FTW!

Get it, BUT make sure you plug it into the right plug. If it is easy to get to, its the wrong one. The CAGS plug is on top of the tranny. The one thats easy to get to is your reverse selonoid. Plug it in there and you wont be able to get into reverse!

Yup, my husband had an extra one on the shelf at the shop and that was the first mod to our 5th Gen.

I got one from SLP, and it works great! no probelms!

Michael_Js 11-30-2009 02:14 PM

Using the SLP one, no issues... :)

1977and2010 11-30-2009 06:35 PM

Works like a champ, easy to install. Engineers trying to tell me when and where to shift, yeah right.

ljustin293 11-30-2009 06:37 PM

lol, I actually did the same with my 4th gen. I had the part in my hands before I even took delivery of my car.

I am not entirely sure why we even need this skip shift eliminator?? Anyone have the cliff notes as to what happens that makes us need this mod?

SunDevil 04-21-2013 03:34 PM

Ok what I am finding it may only happen in the v8, I have the 6...

It was my first mod installed on the first day I got the car. No brainer.

I ordered this item even before taking delivery of my 2013 Camaro SS, based on my high level of annoyance with a 1994 Camaro. In that older generation, the skip shift was extremely intrusive and frustrating. It was a counterproductive measure encouraging faster acceleration and fuel usage just to avoid getting shoved into 4th gear from 1st. I suppose it's real purpose was better corporate average fuel economy for GM. In the current generation, the skip shift menace is far less apparent. It seems not to intrude under normal city driving like the one of old. But in a way, it makes it that much more annoying when it does happen because one doesn't expect it as before. In any case, it's still worth eliminating it.
I was encouraged by reviews describing the ease of installation. Having just installed mine, I will say it wasn't as simple as I expected. The tight space where the work needs to be done is very limiting. Working with floor jacks, one can only get one hand at a time on the plug. Removal requires prying up a clip and then pulling the plug. I couldn't do that with one hand. I succeeded after leaving a wedged screwdriver blade under the clip and then pulling on it. Installing the eliminator was easier, but again, the tight quarters required some one hand maneuvers to clip the ends together. Once installed, it worked as promised. The skip shift indicator lights up on the dash, but 2nd gear is now available as the car gods intended.
When ordering from the Amazon site, there's an option to enter one's vehicle information. When I did that, I got a warning that the item would not fit my vehicle. I even tried changing my vehicle profile to others that were listed in the description and still got the message. I emailed Yates Performance (the vendor listed at the time, it is a different one now) and they responded very quickly, reassuring me the part should work. The SLP skip shift eliminator is well worth the minimal expense and minor maneuvering it takes to install.
