Hello everyone. I have a quick question/poll for everyone.

I have two 6's both are 2.3l's. One an 07 is auto the other an 05 is a manual.
I was drving my wife's car the 07 auto and noticed her RPM's at 110 km/h(70mph) are about 2600-2700
In my car the 05 mtx I am @ 3000 for the same speed. Is this normal?

I can't say I have any noticeable clutch slip in any gear. I am wondering what everyone else is running at the same speed.
I have checked the rpm calibration on both cars and they are both accurate. I am hoping this is normal for each of these
Tranny's.

Thanks.

It's normal.

Both the 4-cylinder and V6 runs at a higher RPM with MTX compared to the ATX.

I would think this would be due to the manual = 5 speed and the auto = 6 speed... :huh:...:wacko:
