I have heard 3000rpm as well. It is doing that at 70. Starts to sound more like an old aircraft engine at 3000rpm. By the way duel exhausts exiting in front of the rear tires.

65 feels like a nice cruise speed.

I need to run duals on mine.. and clutch the fan.. I'll keep mine at 55-60 and run 2500 RPM.. for me that bus isnt my road-trip warrior..



you can your duals out the sides vs out the back?

The hood and cowl will also be purple, with black fenders, bumpers and grill. Next week will be getting a new windshield, so did not want to paint the front just to have them climbing all over it.
