Just wondering if any of the petrol GQ owners out there could tell me how many rpm you turn over at 100 and 110kph in a 5spd manual? Just trying to guage how good of a highway cruiser a GQ is.

Thanks,
Dave.

My speedo has 10% error. Figs according to GPS are at 100 - 2750, at 110 - 2950. Figs are for RB30 3 litre.
At 318,000 no problems!

G'Day Biscuits,

Old '91 carby 4.2 used to do 2000@100kph and 2200@110kph with 33x12.5x15's (with speedo re-calibrated) and for interests sake, my new 4.8 GU does the same with 275/70/16's.
