What are your RPMs at 80?
 
So on my latest road trip, I found myself at a bit over 2,000 RPMs when at 80 in 6th (only when passing of course :D)

Just wondering what you guys are all seeing at that speed? I know gearing is the main factor here, so I think my 2.73 gears have something to do with this low number. What about SS, ZL1 guys?

Ok, so you have 2 more cylinders and 3.45 gears (correct me if I'm wrong) so that seems to make sense at the moment

OK, so 1LE has 3.93, LS has 2.73, what does a stock SS and ZL1 have?

TooCool5 06-21-2013 02:15 PM

3.27 and I see just over 2,000

Manual ZL1 has 3.73, I believe the auto is 3.23

1LS, manual trans, about 2200-2500 at 80mph

NYYFan325 06-21-2013 03:00 PM

Pretty sure I'm around 2K (I know @ 60 I'm around 1400, so I'm just guess here lol)

snymat68 06-21-2013 03:02 PM

Wheel size also comes into play here.

mikeyg36 06-21-2013 03:09 PM

A bit over 2k I think.

E.T. 06-21-2013 03:19 PM

I'm somewhere in the 2K range at 80mph, probably at least 2300 or more. I have 3.70 gears.
