Skip Shift Eliminator for the 2010 RT 5.7 that Works??

Sorry if this subject has been discussed but I have called the vendors who allege that their skip shift eliminator will work on a 2010 RT and not throw any codes or have other problems. However, all have said they have not personally verified that it works on the 2010 RT but no one has complained. Since it is a relatively inexpensive item, my concern is if it doesn't work properly, it may be sitting on a shelf and no one complained. From the research I have done, it appears that the Ohms resistance should be 250 for the 2010RT not 2500 like it is for the vettes and camaros. The SLP eliminator that I have seen advertised has the same part number listed for the Challenger and Chevrolet products. This doesn't make any sense. One of our vendors advised me that the the Ohm resistance was proprietary and would not tell what it was, unbelievable. I have also read that the eliminator for the 2010 SRT will not work in the 2010 RT and vice versa, and the eliminator that worked on the 2009 RT does not function properly on the 2010 RT.

Don't mean to be long winded but has anyone verified what works, the Ohm resistance, the brand, who sells them and what part number to ask for the 2010 RT???

Thanks in advance.

I bought mine from maryland speed and have had no issues. I think the Srt's have code issues. Had it since Oct, and no issues. Of course mine just came out of winter hibernation from mid Nov to mid March.

The part # is IZM993 from BMC Performance. I have not had any codes or problems. I can't imagine the SSE being different for the RT. The transmissions are the same.

These skip shift eliminators simply substitute a resistor for the solenoid coil resistance of the skip shift lockout solenoid. The computer doesn't know if there is a resistor there or the solenoid coil. Of course, you can measure the coil resistance with an ohm meter to make sure what yours is. You could simply unplug the connector from the solenoid and wire in a resistor of the correct size and Wattage rating and the job would be done. The nice thing about the eliminators is they have already done this for you and since it plugs back into the original solenoid, it keeps the wire harness held up and dirt out of the solenoid connector in case you ever want to put it back stock---and they are cheap. The fact that a vendor told you the resistance value is proprietary is reason to NEVER buy anything from that vendor now or in the future. There are too many reputable companies out there that will gladly verify that the resistance of their eliminator is the same as what you measured your coil to be, thereby, ensuring that their product will work on your car.

Since we are one big happy family and you make a great point about not doing business with vendors like you will see below, here ya go. This is the PM that Speed Inc. sent me. I did call to confirm and was advised that they had not tested the SSE personally but had no complaints.

Re: Skip shift
The resistance value is a proprietary spec. We have confirmed that these work with both the 2010 SRT8 and the 2010 R/T.

Can you tell me what brand it is and how many ohms it has?

Thanks in advance.

I just checked the Maryland Speed web site and the SSE for the Challenger and the Camaro are the same part number, an SLP 21008. Again, it is my understanding that the Chev SSE should be 2500 Ohms and the Challenger 250, so ??.

Thanks for you responses.

I really appreciate everyone's feedback but previous posts have indicated that since the computers are different on the SRT and the RT, although they may have the same tremec transmissions, a different SSE is required for each model.

I would love to hear from more 2010 RT owners who have SSE's that function properly.

Thanks again.

Pictures of Skip Shift Eliminators from BMC & Maryland Speed

Sorry for all my posts, but I'm just trying to clarify what SSE will work.

Below are pictures of the SSE's from BMC and Maryland Speed that allegedly work on the 2010 Challenger RT 5.7. What do you think, simply a different manufacturer or ?

BMC


Maryland Speed

I bought mine from Speed, Inc and installed it a couple of months (about 4,000 miles) ago on my 2010 R/T. No codes, no errors.

Their item # is IZM993, cost $18.99
