Ahh, ok, I didn't see they added another gear to it, so its a 5.5 speed...(was thinking of the 45RFE..)

4th is 0.75, 5th is 0.67..

and at the dragstrip i'll pull the shifter back into second so it'll hold 3rd to the rev limiter. (on the 04)

yeah i call it a 6 speed, it uses a different 2nd gear to upshift, than downshift.

It made a difference for me by using OD for my mileage, thats really why I ask. If I netted a 20% increase in mileage (which I did) by using OD, I'd like to use it!!

Do they make any fancy chips for the older trans' to allow a tow/haul mode or is all that older stuff controlled with new valve do-dads?
