Default RPM @ 120kph

Just curious at what your guys RPMs are at when your traveling 120kph.

I had the tranny rebuilt, and I think she'* still reving too high for 120kph on a straight level road. She'* steady at 2500rpm... or maybe just a tad below.

Sounds like 73.5 mph. About 2100 with 2.97 and 2350 with 3.33. 2500 sounds like a 2.97 unlocked. Check actual with a scan tool.

I checked my buildsheet.... these are the codes that I suspect might help determine the drive ratio.

FE2 - Touring Car Suspension
MX0 - 4-Speed Automatic Transmission
ME9 - Man 5 Spd, Eaton, FSO-2305A 4 (what is this?)

Anyone have any ideas what the drive ratio is?

I show ME9 as the 4T60/440T4 transmission, MX0 seems to be a merchandising option.

Might be able to tell from the four digit code on the transmission (numeral - probably last digit of year - followed by three letters).
