Not too sure what it revs on the freeway as theres no tacho in my car :( Anyone know roughly what rpm it does at around 100 - 130 k's?
But basically im after better performance off the line as well as being able to know that its always going to light up both tyres, and its always going to kick out in the wet.. and not just when it wants to (i think my open wheeler diffs starting to play up)
Xtreme 275.6 rwkw, 12.93 sec quater, Phoon CAI, Siemens Injectors, StealthFX BOV with XBOX entertainment.
3.25 sounds fine to me then, its not a HUGE step like other people choose. If your only on the freeway twice a day for a short period of time then it shouldnt worry the old hip pocket. If however you make trips up north or down south a fair bit then it might cost a few extra dollars.
With that said though, running your engine at slightly higher revs wont use much more fuel. Your smack bang on/in your torque range, so the cars doesnt have to work to overtake or just speed up slightly. I can see it being more effiecient. Ive tested the fuel economy at 100 and that read 8.0L/100km, and i tested it at 150, and that reported 10.0L/100km. So i was getting 50km further & quicker for only 2L more fuel usage, which is a shit load more economical, and that due to me sitting smack bang in the middle of the torque curve.
Theres more to it than that, but yeah, go for it, have some fun :D
