OOPSY, mine runs about 3500. That is pretty much more than 2500, I take it, that ain't good?

cruise (ie maintaining speed) at 72 should be around 1900 rpm for a series II, not sure about your series though.

RPM is dictated by the transmission gearing ratio. We need the RPO code of your SSE to properly determine what gearing. In my 89 70 mph (115 kph or so) it was about 1800-2000 in OD.

However in my high geared Aurora its nearing 2500.

Look on the top of your spare tire cover in the trunk. You should see a sticker with a bunch codes on it. They dont say which is which so right em all down and post em and we can find your gearing.
