The funny thing is I believe the V6 will crank more RPM's than the V8 coming out of the factory without any mods.

For the switch to metrics..... you do that in the DIC, and if you do it while driving, you can actually see the needle auto calibrate and jump to the converted measurement.

So, of course since 60 mph is 100 km/hr, you need a few more notches than the top speed in mph.

But I will admit it looks cool as hell. Beats the alternative in the late 1970s-mid 1980's when EVERY American car (even Corvettes) had a 85 mph speedo with the 55 highlighted.

DOHC engines with smaller displacement tend to turn higher than big OHV engines. just saying...

not only for the metric switch (which vehicles sold in metric countries will have metric gauges that go to 300 [at least on the SS]), but they know not everyone will keep stock tires and tune.

wrong side?

that's how all the GM full-size trucks have been for at least 20 years. the corvettes have been that way even longer...
