Advice needed.

Hi guys.
I am new to the group. Just bought a very nice SFA with a Lexus conversion - 1UZ with original 5 speed gearbox.

Diff has been done and vehicle does about 100km/hour in 5th @ 2500 rpm. Is this in line of what it shpulde be?

Thanks
JC

2500 rpm in 5th at 100 km/h sounds pretty good.

What is the rpm at 120km/h ?

I think mostly with standard box they did about 3500 rpm at 120 km/h, yours sounds low which is good for a v8
