as you indicated in your post.
Thank everyone for your comments. I think the RPM are running on the low end around 2350 - 2600 range. So I think bring it up to the 3000 as indicated it might run a little better.
The good side I never had any warnings are even elevated temps on the gauges. I know at 5000 + elevations you need to work a little harder, don't we all.
I rented an Expedition when I went to Colorado for a ski trip. I would have bet my paycheck that it had the 4.6L engine in it based on the power it had and what I was used to. Popped the hood and there stood the 5.4L. I was shocked with the amount of power loss the elevation had on this engine.
If you can keep the RPMs that low then let the engine torque do the work. But based on your right foot, it may not happen and you will have elevated RPMs.
