I see this thread is old, however I'm seeking clarification on downshifting in an automatic using the sport mode (+ & -) feature. I only have a muffler delete with X pipe and when downshifting I get great exhaust noise such as popping etc and people think Im driving a manual but my question is, is there any danger to the transmission while downshifting and the rpms are over 3000? I usually downshift around 2500-3000 but you get much better sounds a bit higher but my hubby says Im ruining the transmission
. So please if anyone can chime in here and explain if its ok or not.
