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 )

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

Wheel size also comes into play here.

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