Well Skytop, you really have to understand the term, Engine Braking, as this may have an effect along with vehicle speed while coasting. Engine Braking, is caused when the throttle is closed while coasting, which greatly restricts air flow to the intake manifold. Because of this, the engine has to work against the restricted air flow thus causing the brake effect. It does it on the Hemi with the 545/65RFE as well, as I like to use it while coasting downhill. Technology I tell ya, it's too Kewl.
