Also ... will the 700r4 remain "engaged" through a deceleration? IE engine braking?

Wifee had a 97 Tahoe ... so the 4L60e? ... IDK who thought it was a good idea to "coast" below 40 mph, but that (and the lack of driver energy management) caused me to replace brake pads every 20-30K miles! (lots of city driving at that time)

I'd rather the clutches remain engaged like in my F350's "tow mode" and downshift than for the tranny to "let go." Gonna have a reasonably high torque engine. Should be able to use that in both directions of speed change.


1961 Impala. 4 door. 283, turbo 350. Imron Midnight blue metallic with silver stripe.
