To high anyway

If you are buzzing your 3.6 into those rev ranges you should have bought a Camero. These are trucks and the truck LXF 3.6 is tuned to deliver its max torque at a lower RPM, 4000. I've had mine for a few weeks and yes the tach is 6500, which I hadn't even noticed because there is no way my engine will ever be near that. So far its seen maybe 4000. I am still training the transmission to up shift at around 2500 RPM which carries the truck to 50k/30MPH quite nicely. Going on to the freeway I step it up to 3500 and in very short order I'm doing 110k/70MPH. To pass on the open highway you should not need to exceed 4000 to 4500 RPM, right in the torque band. Pulling a trailer might be different but my truck will never do that. DB
