Re: New '09 LT and Pinging
You should not have any pinging on 93 gas. You have 1200 miles on her and you need to get the rpms up. Normal cruise on the interstate is the only time you should be in 5th. She performs best between 3,500 and 7,500. First gear is good to 62 mph. Let the girl sing. If you are pouring on the coals from 2,500 rpm you will get some racket, drop her down a few gears and see how that feels.
