Programmed the 60
#11
As Tom mentioned, a transmission reprogram could lower the shift point so you are running in 6th rather than 5th at 67 but other than that, would require gear change.

Yesterday I was running at 65 mph on level highway in Nevada and the engine consistently showed less than 1,500 rpm. I will check again in a few days at 67 mph and post the rpm.

You are right

Could the speedometer been change to show faster MPH which would show lower RPM and also give a better fuel milage? Could you really only be running 62 instead of 67? This would make the rpm less and also show more miles traveled. Check the Speed reading
