how fast in 2nd gear

I'm looking to buy a 2006 GTO and was wanting to know how fast will it go in 2nd gear before you need to shift?

Welcome to the Forum....

Red line is 6500 RPM. How Fast? I'd not go past red line.

Below is taken from the manual.


Manual Transmission Recommended
Shift Speeds

1 to 2
16 mph
(25 km/h)

2 to 3
22 mph
(35 km/h)

3 to 4
30 mph
(48 km/h)

4 to 5
40 mph
(65 km/h)

5 to 6
50 mph
(80 km/h)

If your speed drops below 20 mph (32 km/h), or if the
engine is not running smoothly, you should downshift to
the next lower gear.
One to Four Shift Light
(Manual Transmission)
When this light comes on, you can only shift from
FIRST (1) to FOURTH (4) instead of FIRST (1) to
SECOND (2). The light will be displayed on the
instrument panel cluster and a message will be
displayed on the trip computer.
You must complete the shift into FOURTH (4) to turn
off this feature. This helps you get the best possible
fuel economy.

Downshifting

If you skip a gear when you downshift, you
could lose control of your vehicle. You could
injure yourself or others. Do not shift down
more than one gear at a time when you
downshift.

it looks like there is a shift light stock on the dash right next to the 7k mark...... how do i get it to function?? cuz sometimes after leaving the burnout box i hit rev limiter by accident and it still doesnt come on or blink. And I have seen videos where this light works.

Feel the torque

That light is non functional however I hear there is a guy who can enable it for a fee. I was informed a new member of the forum ( )discovered a way to enable it. If what I heard is correct and they want to share their knowledge............ Many would be appreciated.
