<font color='#000080'>Hey Zex, unless you have changed your gearing ratios, i'm not sure that it would only be at 4500 at 125mph; i was at least 6000rpm going 123?  Does the 85' have different ratios than the 86'?   ???</font>

<font color='#FF0000'>:suspect: aahhhh, your making me think!!! i do believe they are diff. considering in 86 the engine was a 2.2L instead of the 2.4L...i will just have to go out on a road somewhere and do it again but i am pretty sure that it was at around 4500...maybe 5 but i don't think i was over that. if i get a ticket your payin! lol
 will let ya know

also you said 123 @ 6000...   redline is 6000 on mine and i KNOW i was no where at redline</font>

<font color='#000080'>Oh, ok CelicaFan, but Zex, my 86' is a 2.0 liter, not 2.2, so i guess since its a smaller engine, it would run at higher RPMs, alright...</font>
