3200 RPMS?StangLx50 said:Will 4.10 gears run the engine too high for too long on highway trips? Its an automatic with OD 2002. What will the rpm's be at around 75-80 anyway? Thanks!
Mustangdewd3.8 said:It won't hurt but in the long run it will. If yo keep going fast at like 70 mph you'll be up close to 4,000 RPMs and running that high will just wear the engine quicker than normal.
actually, centrifugal SC units have no effect on winter driving. They really don't do much until 3000 RPMs. If you're diving at 3,000 RPMs in winter weather, you're just thinning the herd, anyway.StangLx50 said:Well i guess i could put it this way, i drive it everyday, don't beat on it, we all step on it now and then otherwise we'd drive hybrids, and i drive on the expressway 1-2 times out of the month. Not to mention the car only has 36,000 miles and when my loan is payed off i'm trading it in for a new one anyway, think i'll switch back to a v8 depending on how much hp the v6 has in 5 years. Drove a 5.0 before this but i really do like the v6 and the saved money from insurance and gas, main thing i miss is the exhaust rumble :sosad: that obviously you can't replicate. If it didn't go through winters i would supercharge it but i highly doubt superchargers are good for winter, haha
no, salt etc isn't an issue.StangLx50 said:And god knows we need to be thinned out, :laughlitt Wouldn't salt and winter eat away at a Supercharger or not really anymore than it would the car, I never considered buying one cause i figured i would get "what idoit would supercharge a car they drive in the winter" Just didn't know if SC were sensitive or not. Bald tires last winter and my just buying my car, i don't think i broke 20mph let alone 3000rpms,lol. THanks!
nah.StangLx50 said:Whats the average price range for one, i'm basically seeing $3000-4000 so i doubt i could get away with less than that huh. And while i'm talking hurting the engine, do they if you keep it around 7-9psi with basically no other mods, just 73 mass air, CAI, exhaust. Thanks! :eyepoppin
