Thats about right Casper. My GPS shows me at 60MPH at just a HAIR over 2K. I'm running 245/45 R18's so. I think you got it prett close. I think I'm doing 73 at 2500 but I could be wrong. You'll have to wait for someone else to chime in cuz I'm in the Middle East and the car is in storage.

It also depends on what tire size you are running. You need to get a reading with someone running the same size tire as you are. The tachs in our cars is also not that accurate, but maybe they are all about the same.
If you can find someone with a GPS and take them for a ride in your car might be the best way to get the reading.

Casper I told you man I'm in the middle east and the car is in storage. But on my trip to Tacoma I'm pretty sure that the car was showing 73 to 74 at 2500RPM.

i wish, at 2000 rpm, i'm going 65mph. and i'm pretty sure no 3.73 gears in the back, because if there was, the cougar would move a little faster

You are not too far off. As noted, this depends on tire size too.
