Running at 80mph brings right at 4000rpm and 85mph brings about 4200rpm! That seems awfully high! Is this a typical RPM for a 260e? Any owners out there with the same figures? I just had a used tranny put in it. Is there a possibility I could have gotten a different model or is that even possible?

Car drove excellent with good power today on my way to Atl. I am pleased considering I have about $2000 in the whole car! I need to do a little body work and get some A/C going and it will be good to go! Thanks!
