3 speed auto: under 2000rpm @ 100 km/h?
Many months back there was a topic about rpm @ 100 km/h, and all the responses were predictable (remembering the different transmissions and diff ratios) except ben's. He said his 3 speed did under 2000 rpm @ 100.
As soon as people lashed out at this claim, he responded that he actually has 2 EAs, one of which is a 3 speed with a super-tall diff (apparently restricting its 0-100 km/h time to the better part of 20 seconds) and this is how he got such low rpm @ 100.
But now some questions remain unanswered, as this long-legged EA (which couldn't possibly be the recipient of ben's ECU mods due to its reasonable 0-100 time to begin with) has not be spoken of since.
I hope ben does not interpret this post as any form of attack - but it is an attempt to bring an issue to light. Does anyone else remember the post I am talking about, and what happened to this long-legged EA?
