I usually just leave it in 6th to keep the MDS off. Sure the 8spd is nice but not a huge deal to me. I will be happier when the release the DS tuning for the 13's more than anything since the 87 tune and MDS off gained me a couple MPG in my 09 hopefully it will do the same in this one. Maybe next time I will try out a 8 spd of there isn't a newer tranny by then.
Interesting read there. I have the 3.92s with the "6" speed so that is ggod to hear haha. How do you like the 8 speed when you start going?
