Sounds about right. My Hyundai 2.0 litre w/5 speed runs about 3K rpm at 70 mph. Sure wish it had a 6th gear. The 2001 1.8T runs around 2500 rpm at 70 mph IIRC w/TIP. My Mark VIII ran about 1800 rpm at 70 mph, but that's a horse of a different color compared to the other 2 cars.what rpm do you run @80 MPH? I am at 3000 seems like there should be an overdrive or something.
60 MPH =2100 rpm
Does this seem right to others?

Mine is too. With a manual 5-speed @70, i'm just below 3,000. Took me a while to get used to as my old Audi 80 1.8 did just 2,600 rpm at 70 mph and i'm sure was better for fuel economy as a result. I guess the tips have longer gearing.I run about 3200-3400 for 80, I think or its 3400-3500. I think its the earlier though ... I forget. It definitely above what everyone else has reported to far. (1.8t/5spd).
