i just picked up a 93 mustang lx 5 speed its got a 2.3 with 48k said it was original miles not sure though the car has great acceleration for a 4 cylinder smokes nothing burns nothing leaks nothing but i was going down freeway doing about 55-60 in 5th gear and noticed my rpms were at 2000 is this normal? there is no hesitation in motor or knocking ticking either and all stock it does have pony wheels on it any info would be great thanks
That seems very normal to me. In my 97 BMW 5-speed I do about the same. I guess during the 90s fuel economy on the highway wasn't the biggest priority. They just decided those ratios would be best.
