Hi Matt,

Your V6 isn't weak. It will take 6,000 rpm shifts all day long without even breathing hard. The factory red line for the l;ittle 2.8 V6 is 6,000, which means it is safe at 6,000 rpm. The engine itself will take more than that, but the anciliaries, like the water pump, alternator etc. don't like it very much. I would not worry about it, since you say you don't want to race it. The 2.8 V6 doesn't start to make power until about 2,500 - 3,000 rpm. The V6 is the happiest running at at least 3,000. your V6 will outlast most other engines.


QUOTE=DaisyPusher;176433]What is you personal top speed with a 2.8l? I'd like to know the limits of the engine but I'd prefer to not surpass them and find out the hard way...

Cheers, Matt[/quote]

A little bit milder cam. Everything Optimized. I punched in IN 220 @ .050, EX 210 @ .050. IN .460 lift, EX .470. Inbetween stock and Jose grind. 17" vacuum at idle of 800RPM. 15 initial and 32 total @ 3000RPM ignition timing. Mild head porting and 2.9 valves. 8.5 to 1 Compression. Offy intake, 390 Holley, Headers. Cam @ 5 advance(1 tooth). Advertised duration probably around 270 intake, 260 exhaust. Still showing lean under 2000RPM. Trying to install a scanner to show chart. 195 FTLBS TQ @ 4500RPM, 190 Flywheel HP @ 6000RPM. That would be approximately 152 @ rear wheels. Remember this is a computer program and hypothetical.

Performance Trends Engine Pro. I'm having issues installing the scanner to show the graph. I'll figure it out.

I know this is just a computer program, but it sure is fun! I like the numbers.
