Low End Torque Improvements


Recommended Posts

I've seen alot of topics here that point to things that are hurting low-end torque, so my question is: What relatively simple things (if any) can you do to improve it?

 

On my old S-10 which had a 4-speed automatic, I used to drop it out of overdrive while driving around town to keep the RPMs up. It really seemed to give it more of a power-on-demand feel than when I hit the gas. Is that what the "Towing" feature on the shifter does on my Silverado? Simply shifts it out of overdrive? Does that hurt the transmission driving it too much around town like that?

 

Any input is appreciated. The only thing I haven't enjoyed about my new Silverado is that bogging-down feel I get when I take off or when it downshifts at lower speeds.

 

Thanks.

TM only pulls timing during shifts. If your losing timing all the time you have other problems. Another thing to add. Your 05 has the electronic TB. That is gonna magnify the feelings of torque managment. The PCM actually closes the blade during a shift.
