Pathfinder...I stayed with the 5.9 in my 07. So I had the 4 speed 48RE tranny.

Ahh...read your post again. I see what you are saying about running in 5th on the new one.

Thanks.

Sounds like it might not be a bad idea to keep in 5th for the ups and downs and go into 6th for the long straights?

That's what I do... so far it works great! She will hold 6th at 60, but the RPMs are too low for my liking (1400ish). 5th puts her at 1800 and right at the torque peak
