Really? What gears and size tires do you have? I have 4.11s and 275/60-R15s (~28") where at 80 MPH I'm turning ~2800 RPM. Your TBI engine should turn ~4000 RPM before it falls flat.I don't think my 95 will even hit that number. I think I'll run out of engine before I hit 90. At 80 I'm turning roughly 3100 and red line is 3500ish.
4.10's and 265/75/16. Have to remember a 6.5 won't wind up as fast as a 5.7. My gasser will never see much more then 65 the steering is to loose for my liking at highway speeds and I have no plans on fixing that. In town driving it is ok which is where it spends its time.Really? What gears and size tires do you have? I have 4.11s and 275/60-R15s (~28") where at 80 MPH I'm turning ~2800 RPM.

So does that mean we can call you "Sonic the hedgehog"? Since his motto is "gotta go fast"....Just thought I'd update this thread. My truck has really woke up. With a cool front, and cooler temps, it runs as good now if not better than before. It was improving over time anyway. It has always like cooler air though. I know that the ECM does learn and make some adjustments to your driving habits, somewhat, and of course, my habit is pedle to the metal. I can't help it, it's just how I am. I just can't stand to go slow.
