In an auto or manual? In a 6 speed at 3rd gear it should be up to the 7 RPM or 8 dont remember.

depends on what car you are driving, whether gt or gts. also depends on if you are manual or automatic.

i looked at your profile and your model is not listed, along with whether or not its auto or manual so you'll have to be more specific thumbsup

i don't know exactly, but in my manual gts in 6th gear, i think 80 mph is somewhere around 4k rpms. give or take some..someone feel free to correct me if they know the actual number.

as long as your wheels/tires are still stock (or use the stock diameters) then your speedometer should still be calibrated to show 80 mph pretty accurately (it may be off by a few mph once you start getting past 100 mph though). changing the overall wheel diameter (whether through rims/tire or both) will make the mph differences off by a few unless you recalibrate your speedometer. in any case it shouldn't be off by more than a few mph either way.

and rpm's are really NEVER off.

i don't have the 5 speed gt as i already said what i had..but 4000 rpms doesnt sound like much of a stretch to me.

the higher your rpm's are, the more 'wining' they will make. this is especially true for small gears because they go though the rpm band so fast
