Man I get excited thinking about doing some major stuff to my car. I need some advice. I have decided to go with a built up 700r4. My rear gears are 3.08. I need to know if cruising at 60mph will put my car under the power band of the motor.
Here is info on the engine: 383 stroker, edelbrock performer(not RPM) intake, comp cams extreme energy 268 cam, HEI ignition, S/R torquer heads, headers, Edelbrock 600 cfm carb, 2.5" exhaust, KB hyperuetectic pistons, roller tip rockers.
This engine was designed with off idle to 5500 Rpm power in mind. I want to confirm that it won't be a dog cuising if the rpms go toward the 1800 mark around 55mph, etc.
Yes, I drive it ALOT and need to get some decent gas mileage.
Thanks for the help,
