So, it depends, really. Do you need to slow down more so quickly, or less quickly? That will dictate it.

I have 2.7s. Downhill I down shift to the gear that keeps me at he speed I want, while I normally only coast when down shifting is too much of a slow down.

It will get better with warm weather and my future underbody!
Thanks. My head was starting to spin reading all the posts over there. Nice to get a simple easy to apply answer. It'll be interesting to see how this affects my mileage. Another poster mentioned that when they babied their accelerator in the city their mpg went down vs when they drove like they didn't care. I'm thinking their regular "don't care" driving may have ended up being a version of pulse and glide. So I'll be trying that too!

That should be pretty simple to remove and replace it with a shorter one. It should connect at the base.

But the op is referring to removing it entirely and placing it in the rear window.

Haha it depends on the person, but I think you can do it. You may want to get a small wrench to grip it.
