You might want to research the new 6 speed a bit more. All of the ratios are different, it is not a tuning thing. The current 5 speed is a 3.00 1st gear, w/ D (3rd) direct drive. The new 6 speed has a shorter first gear, w/ 4th being direct drive ( or 1-1). 6th is a slightly taller overdrive than the current 5th. Basically, this will make the truck quicker from a stop, and have you cruising at a slightly lower RPM at freeway speeds.
