    Mine was set at 63 even though they told me 65. Radar's don't lie.

    My GPS says 64.7 is what I get on the flat...but Lordy when that ISX gets all of its HP on the upgrade, look out! I'm comin' ta GETCHA!

    What I mean by that is that I don't mind the 65 max when the engine doesn't wimp out on the hills. Cummins did a smart thing when they made the computer recognize the load and grade and feed the engine more horsepower. Made a fan out of me, anyway.

    Easy way to tell at ANY speed clock yourself with a stopwatch in a mile and divide the total number of seconds into 3600 and it will give you the DEAD on Speed at ANY speed. The month and a half i spent at marten my truck ran 63mph Quallcom and speedo showed 65 but the truth is it ran 63 PERIOD.
