    Default Is this a normal rpm to be running at?

    So I have noticed since my trans rebuild that on the highway my car seems to me at least to be running a little high on the rpms, maybe it always has and I just haven't noticed, or maybe since I got my exhaust done around the same time as the trans the drone is fooling me. Anyways the car is a 01 gt so 3.29 gears? Thanks

    That looks normal to me. Mine with 2.93 gears runs around 2000 rpm at 70.

    My former '03 would churn 2600 @ 80 mph. My current '06 is more like 2100- 2150? (tailwind-headwind) @ 80 mph. I have a long commute to work and use cruise @ 80 mph a LOT....
    not what it looks like

    Looks correct to me, the 97-03's have 3.29's in the base/GT models. 04+ switched to a 3.05.
