Can anyone confirm what RPM a T5 should be doing at 70kmh or 40 mph in proper money ? mine reads about 4700rpm, does this sound about right ? The digital tach is difficult to read as its so small so the reading could be slightly more or less, tia

also what should be tickover speed be, mine is at about 1300

TICKOVER is a little fast, but its all about setting a smooth tickover that doesnt die.

speed/revs
thats about righ for a standard setup. T5 are higher revving beasts
