Sounds about right; subtract 20-40 for the 2.8 I think (lots of change in the
cam and the induction from 2.8 to 2.9).

smoothly until at least that RPM and I don't really notice any drop in power
until about 4700 RPM. Still, I've never run it to redline since it doesn't
make much power up there.

Yeah.. falls off the powerband pretty quick. I wish I'd had the tach hooked
up when an old friend of mine (actually the one that had the diesel Chevette a
long time ago) was visiting a few years back and I let him experience deep
sand off-roading. Seemed to be afraid to shift up for fear of losing
momentum. Certainly in excess of 6000 RPM and by ear I'd say 6500+... I was
cringing and hollering "shift!!" (and thinking that without the f!) knowing
that a tow would be well over $100 from the ORV area. Other than the B-II we
had an enjoyable hour or so and the steed survived the abuse at 140K so it was
treated to some fluid changes etc.

Not a problem; I get swamped/overloaded sometimes and disappear too.

The 2.9 is naturally a rev monster (it performs at 3000-5500RPM).
