My tach reads about 2100 RPM @ 70mph. My final drive ratio as indicated by RPO codes is 3.33 (GX3). Yours sounds right to me.

You lucky bugger

GX3 - ratio, transaxle, final drive 3.33

yer tranny is VERY high geared so your revs will be high at high speeds...very good!!!

And for the record you dont have a Series 1 that started in 92, you have a LN3 3800 not the L27 (series 1)

Thanks Jim but I am a damsel in distress and need a little help still. I looked at the list and don't know how that tells me what the RPO code is.

RPO coding is the factory standard and options package that your car has. You have a GX3 RPO for the tranny. Its higher geared (higher then the SSEi) thats why you rev higher then normal at higher speeds.

Gearing doesn't mean higher rev'* at higher speeds. It just changes where the shift points are, so some speeds have higher RPM while so are lower.

What mods do you have? 3rd gear is limited to 109 at WOT in a stock 00 PCM. 4th is limited to 128.
