that's normal for a GT thumbsup

how the hell would mod's do anything to your RPM's at any given speed? the only thing that would change this is gear ratio's, and rim/tire sized

was....5speed with i/h/e
15.41 @ 89.30mph 2.282 60'

is....04 srt4 stock
13.936 100.15mph 2.177 60'

i think it's normal... I have a GTS manual and it's about the same 80 at 4k rpm... though i noticed it was lower when i striped my back seat, spare and passenger seat... don't know why... it drop to about 3700 or 3800 at 80mph... i guess it take less power to keep a lighter car going.

its the same for a gts, atleast mine. since it mustly has to do with the gearing and all, on at least 3 cars i have noticed 4th gear the rpm and the speed arrows will point in the same direction the whole time. havent tried it in the celi cause i forgot all about it until now, but i will.

well if your more aerodynamic it will need less power to keep you at a speed

at 80 mph stock in 5th gear and at 80 mph with an aerodynamic body kit, and Turbo you will still be at the EXACT same RPM

that has nothing to do with rpms though, all that means is you will have less drag so if you let off the gas you wont slow down as quick. like if you were in a 88 ford f150 and got off it you would stop hella sooner then if you were in your car and got off the gas.
