Re: 8speed: torque converter behavior in OD?

I appreciate the explanations. It does make sense for the system to turn Eco off automatically when Sport is engaged.

It will be interesting to see how it all acts in the various modes while I'm towing one of my trailers. Since neither one is over 3500 lb, I know the drive train won't be straining. Sport mode may or may not be needed most of the time.

Drive (UNloaded) with the trans temp showing for a couple days, so you know where your truck's "normal" temps are. Then, tow with trans temp showing and see what keeps it closest to the empty temps.

One other thing to think about if you have Quadra Lift. If you are in sport mode you will stay at the "aero" drive height all of the time. Otherwise you will switch back and forth between "normal" and "aero".

I set my trailer height (I use a Rapid Hitch) based on Sport Mode. I like that it with change height on my whole towing and like the firmer towing ride.
