RPM vs. Gear Ratio and Tire Height

This chart shows you the cruise rpm at 60 miles per hour based on gear ratio and tire height. For maximum performance with less converter slip at the lockup point, your converter's stall speed should stall close to these figures. If the gear ratio and tire size you want to use isn't on the chart, use the following formula to calculate cruise rpm:

MPH x Axle Ratio x 336
Tire Diameter

These specs are for stock-type bolts with light engine oil applied to the threads and the underside of the bolt head.

If you use aftermarket performance bolts like ARP's, you should follow the recommended torque specifications.
