Ageed!!! I didn't even run out of gear in a drag race, it actually grabbed 9th gear, and was still pulling like a beast at 90 through the lights in 15.2 in full auto shift. That's pretty damn impressive for a 4500# 4X4 SUV!!!I'm not sure why having more torque would make it shift more often.? My 2.0T shifts much LESS often than my 3.2 did.... as in it holds gears. Unless you are talking about running out of gear at the 1/4mile drag strip.
