Hey guys, I notice that in 5th gear at 65mph I am at about 3000rpm and at 70mph I am at 3500rpms. Is it normal for N/A's to be running high like that? If anyone knows what might be causing this please let me know ASAP.


Thanks,
George

Yea it's normal. I guess Toyota gave NA's such high gear because it accelerates quicker (given its puny power).

-------

Anyways, I jacked up my rear today and did a run in 5th gear (man was I scared the jacks would fall), and I only did up to like 150mph almost near redline. My engine was rattling like crazy and I was scared I would run right into the garage.

i dont think that would be accurate top speed is it.. theres no friction or resistance so shouldnt it be lower than that number.. and take longer to get there

The top speed is gear limited not power limited. So it doesn't matter if it is on a dyno, street, or in your garage (stupid as shit). Your going to get the same top speed when you redline in 5th.

also the gearing makes riding in an na-t 5 spd crzy.

Yea, lol. My car was rattling cause a few bolts were loose. I kept hearing it while driving but can never pinpoint to what it was. I finally decided to jack up the car and run it in the air. I pinpointed it down the the driveshalf. So I figured while I was at it, I'll try 5th gear mph/rpm.

I know it wasn't the safest thing. IIRC I wasn't the first one to do this, lol. I'll ask them if I can do a top gear pull next time I'm at the dyno.
