Idiot 5eat and 3.0 questions

Ok im going to try to keep this short but if anyone that owns a 2005 to 2006 ll bean awncer this one quick question. So when you go in to manual or sport mode when you go to shift down does then engine rev match between gears or does it kinda just drop in into a lower gear?

I don't think it's different between the XT and the 3.0- but no, no revmatch. The transmission controller won't allow a shift that would take you beyond the rev limiter, but it also won't rev the engine to match.

I'm not certain, but I think they added this as a feature in 2008 but I'm not sure which versions of the car got it.

My 2008 does rev match, but it won't let you shift down when you'd be near or past the rev limiter.

Haven't driven an older Gen 3 with the 5EAT so I'm not sure about them. It looks like rasterman is correct, though, and this was added in 2008.

ok thanks for the info I wouldn't ever think of a situation when going beyond 7 grand rpm is needed but what I was thinking was either down gearing when coming to a red light or dropping a gear on the high way (lets say 5th to 4th) to be higher in the power band, when doing either of those how does the car react? is it smooth or very harsh and jerky?

My 05 doesn't rev match. That being said, the kickdown isn't nearly as rough as in a lot of other automatic trasmission cars I've driven.

Any chance you could get a video of the tach or somehow to show how much you're jerked when down shifting at 2 -3k rpm if you could do that you would be my hero!

I can't say I've experienced anything like you're describing when downshifting in my 05 3.0R.

downshifting from 2-3k isn't worth a video, it's that smooth. at 4500 & up? yeah that'll be a bump, but still not bad.

My 5EAT isn't perfect. But is about the d*mn finest "slush box" I have ever driven or owned. I could NEVER drive this car as comfortably OR spririted with an MT...no way, not in an urban setting. This 5EAT is the t*ts.

It has some TQ flubs and downshifting harshness(WOW, that is harsh/strong...I'm so critical. But seriously, drive some other crap out there...you'll feel blessed, truly)
