Well that changes my entire way of thinking

I figured lower RPMs are better for towing not sure why it just made sense in my head.

So having OD on is good for regular driving? I haven't noticed a different in fuel economy either way so I just leave it on since thats the way the engine starts and they must of made it that way for a reason

Lower RPMs will bog it down while towing.

OD on is fine and SHOULD be on for regular driving. When it is off you should see an "OD/off" light come on on the dash. That is how mine is atleast.

I press the button when I want it to kick up to 3rd for fun while passing or something. Otherwise it should be on all the time for fuel econ.

Yep mine shows the light when it's off.

I never found a difference in fuel economy but I figured that its healthier for the engine to be running at lower rpms

More problems, the stock headunit kept spitting out all my CDs and saying error so just to be sure I put them in my moms car and they work fine, so instead of just having it on acc I started it and it took forever but it actually played one. Jenns starting to piss me off.
It Will not Play mp3 files and other burned cd's, having a hard time with mine also. They didnt know about mp3 files and such when they Made this HD.

Dude, definately don't shut it on/off for "fun while passing or something" ....not good for the tranny at all, especially your 42rfe which is injury prone to begin with.

just lookin out homie

While I am not disregarding this, how is it different then when it kicks down from stepping on the gas?

I usually just floor it when I want to kick down, the O/D thing really isn't a habit

EDIT: But I do keep OD off when I tow.

I'm not a fan of the price. But I was interested cause I've never seem a retro fit before and then I was curious about the quad high beams.

Are those CCFL halos? I bought the LED ones and was really disappointed with how dim and how they didn't work half the time. Next time I'm definitely getting CCFL
