I found that with my tune I efficiently pass everyone around 3500-4000 RPM

My milage is there not so much at a specific RPM but when that little friendly boost gauge says down. Do 55-65mph with 3:73s and you will be good!

Where is your boost usually at while cruising at 65ish with no load?

Yea mines pretty efficient at passing too when you kick the boost up to 30, always fun passing the sport cars screaming

Cool. Good info. I am used to my Grand National which does not "carry" boost while cruising. Big diff with this 6.0 PSD...
