What I don't understand is I thought the LS Camaros had a tall gear for fuel economy... I thought that taller gears would get lower RPMs when cruising on the freeway?

I tested to make sure - at 80mph I'm at 2300-2400 rpms.

So wouldn't that mean I have a shorter gear? I really thought an economy geared v6 would have lower RPMs at 80mph than the SS...?
