Just curious. I've got no red line and the book says do not operate engine at high rpm's. What exactly does that mean? Common sense would seem to be to keep WOT below 6k and cruising below 3k.

I hold WOT on highway to 5k, city only 2.5k

I drive city:

In 4th at 1500 at 35 mph
In 5th at 1100 at 35 mph (on long flat straight stretches)

I drive Highway:

in 4th at 3000 at 55 mph, maybe(actually this is for accel, I don't hold it here)
in 5th at 1900 at 55 mph

So whats the fastest you cruise at?

please list engine, trans, gears if not in your sig.

thanks

WOT it shifts right at 5980 right now. Had it set for 6100 but didn't like it.
Cruising at 65 mph I'm around 1600 RPMs.

Are you looking for stock information or are you looking to have the Auto people with Tuners give their settings?
