Re: 2nd Gear Boggs?
It took me some time, years, to get used to rrunning my LT at higher RPMS.
You will be simply amazed at your speed in first gear up around 6-7K.
I came across Texas last year and compared gas milage using 4th vrs using 5th. It wasn't a controlled experiement. But, I go about the same milage, 52 mpg?.
My conclusion, since theses engines easily go past 200K, is that running her at higher RPMs, probably her sweet spot, doesn't have a down side.
