    idle rpms should be 750 for the 2.6 - adjust it down after checking the timing - these run best at 10 degrees btdc, stock is 7 btdc

    Redline is 6000, but most 2.6s will never see it in these trucks on a regular basis - no need to.

    If you have AC you might want to up the idle a bit because during the summer when you turn on the AC it will drop the idle down and with headlights on it drops a little more. 900 doesn't seem to bad. But, I like mine a little more on the higher end for some reason.

    yeah my truck does not seem like it idles high and i set the redline on my tach at like 3.5 or 4 cause it seems like 3.5 is really pushing my motor by the way it sounds anyway
