With all due respect, I have the same Gibson/Volant setup and started a similar thread a few weeks back having the same comparisoin with rpm/speed. I do agree with you to a certain point, but if the beast has more torque (read: can cruise at a given speed with less effort) then the torque converter can engage at a lower rpm and thus lower your rpm for a given speed. Someone more in the know about Armada's than I, brought that up in my thread...may have been SCR, I forget. Although, oddly enough, it only seems to be signicant at speeds < 55 mph, IMHO. Mine runs 1200/1300 rpm at 45 mph.

The speed at RPM has nothing to do with horsepower. It is simply a formula of RPM times your gear ratio. The more power you have just means getting there faster and possibly a smigin better mileage at speed. Just cause the engine is breathing better, doesn't mean that you are going to go any faster at any given RPM.

Not polite to brag!!!! :urock:

*Jealous of you* As everytime I get pulled over, thankfully RARELY, but they care not that I am a healthcare provider and just get their inkpen writing almost immediately. LOL

Happy New Year to everyone by the way!

Isn't that what the computer does over time (200 or so miles) or if you reset the ECU? I was under the impression that it relearned the NEW a/f mixture and this is why performance actually gets better 50-200 miles after the install. With the Armada being fuel injected and computer savy, find it hard to believe it would run lean at WOT.

Just a thought...

what you need now is engine management to get the a/f correct, you are going to be running a lot leaner than oem and that is not corrected during wot, the lean condition will be exacerbated during cold weather. Personnally I would get it dynoed and find out what the a/f is.
