Thanks E93! That's great news for me .
I never really drive around that range so it's perfect. Hwy cruising I am around 3000, daily cruise I try to keep between 2500-3000 so I have some torque for passing. Will only drone when I'm being extremely lazy. I heard that with our cars its better to cruise a little higher RPM anyway (~3000rpm-ish) because its more fuel efficient to cruise partial throttle, higher RPM.. Than say 1500-ish RPM with throttle bodies more open.. Is there truth to this?

Sorry for hijacking my own thread
