So coming out of Camaro fest I was not 100% sold that the SS manuals had it. I tried it myself several times and mine behaves like the 1st video in the original post, which didn't seem like the feature was really working (at least didn't work how I expected it to). Sure I can no lift shift, but I don't necessarily want to be banging into a 6500rpm limiter if that's not how the feature is supposed to be working.

With that said, I just want clarification from the engineering team on how it's supposed to work and if it's tuned differently between the SS and SS 1LE models (as it appears in the videos I posted). Once I'm clear on how it's supposed to work, then I'll start using it again!

However, from the threads we have here this is a great question.
Maybe he meant no, no lift shift.

I heard you ask Al at Fest. I'm with you on not being 100% sure that the SS has it. No more no-lift-shift for me until more info is provided.

exactly.

Here is another video (ZL1) with a much better example of NLS working.... check out the shift at 2:14 (blahhhpap sound, rpms going DOWN from 6000+ to under 5000, all while full throttle)

my SS definitely does not do this.
