Are you saying your friend got new gears, that are different than yours... yet at 2000 RPM in 6th you both are doing 70 mph?

Ok well I think g44 means you the 85 has the 3.07 gear set... now to go the same speed at the same rpm they should have the same gear set.. as far as I know the ratio;s in the trans are the same.. other factors could include torq converter lock up and trans slippage.. but my guess would be maybe they have the same diff gear ratio.. just because the RPO tag says it has something doesn;t mean it does.. mine has a 3.07 gear set in it and the tag says it's a 2.59.. hee hee but it's soon to be a 3.75 gear as soon as my install kit comes and as soon as I have time to try to set it up..
