Hello again everybody!
Many thanks to those who have helped me with a previous issue.
Now, onto another issue, and relating to a new build which will entail the use of a standard SBC 5.7 & TH350 trans along with a volvo 240 rear axle (3.31-1 ratio), as well as using 255/60 15" rear tyres.
I am figuring out the approx cruising speed etc with the help of the online calculators elsewhere on the forum (engine revs, trans, axle ratios and tyre sizes etc), just wanted to know on average what rpms your 350 does in any modified car that you have put together.
Using the ratios etc that i have on the vehicle so far, at approx 70mph i am looking at a tad over the 3000rpm mark. Ideally i was hoping to have it lower than this as it will be an everyday car and not a drag strip goer if you see what i mean!?
So, in essence, i was wondering if approx 3000rpm is acceptable or unbearable with this motor & set-up etc. What rpms do your own vehicles do at say 60, or 70mph?
Many thanks to anyone who could help me out with this!
