I was in 5th gear today doing just 45 mph.

Thanks again, everyone!

If I hold a gear without throttle, I slow down more than clutch in. DFCO occurs, but it's engine braking...

If I am not accelerating, I am rarely in gear clutch out.

-All of these points here make sense. I, personally, would not get worried until a few thousand miles. Things have to settle, and that will really show how it will be...pre modification.
