Something a lot of people don't consider when changing transmissions is the RPM range of the engine components. Specifically, your camshaft specs. If your camshaft has an RPM range above where you would run at speed with an overdrive, you can end up with your engine lugging and being inefficient and unhappy going down the road.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
