On the factory tachs what are the RPM red lines for the different 1969 Chevelle engines? I saw one at 6000 RPM and was woundering if the 396 375 HP engine had a higher redline. Thanks

Joe,
The L78 got a 6500 redline tach not 6000.A 5500 redline was for base 396 engines

thanks for answering but because of the different answers I'm still not sure what the redlines numbers are! Oh well, thats part of the fun of the old cars.

The "Red-Line" is a factory recomended max shift point... basicly don't go beyond just before the red and you should be okay.
