The RPM you’re seeing is a function of your speed (80 MPH), your sixth gear’s ratio (0.756), your differential’s ratio (3.91) and your tires’ circumference. Those items are essentially fixed, so you’re going to see roughly 3,200 to 3,300 RPM at 80 MPH.

Is 3000 Rpm Normal? In other words, the real operating range for most engines is around 1500 – 3000 rpm for normal drive. A little bit lower may be the case sometimes at the bottom end. When moving normally at the same time, drive at the lower end of that range, typically 2000 to 2500 rpm.
