    Light load I can get it to upshift at about 39. Otherwise, steady throttle, it does it at 43 - 45.

    Re: What speed does your DTS shift into D/OD?

    Here are the later "DTS" transmission ratios - 3 is D, 4 is OD. TCC is not a gear - it is a viscous clutch that removes most of the 4th gear slip between the TC stator and rotor.

    1 = 2.96
    2 = 1.63
    3 = 1.00
    4 = 0.68 (OD)

    You need to find your model/option final drive ratio - most were the economy/cruise 3.11:1. There are speed-rpm tables, TCC engaged above 43 mph, in my albums.
