Yeah man, that is right in there with a rock stock auto's towing capacity. I wouldn't leave it in OD just because of the excess heat. Granted, it will use more fuel in 4th but hey, a little more fuel is worth it to make sure the tranny stays nice and cool.

I believe it's just a tad over 3k or right at 3k. It's fine, sounds high but not really. At least not when you are used to building Hondas as well lol.

Hey now, my import was built here :D


Some of my American cars have been giving more jobs to Canadians and Mexicans than my Hondas and Mitsubishis have.
Can't say **** about my Subaru though, that thing was brought over on a boat, 100% Japanese so feel free to rag me like mad on that one lol.
