Yeah, I drove this thing out, fully loaded with all my worldly possessions, from Central Fl to LV,NV and the engine blew when I pulled into town. So I got this local import garage to take it and they got me a motor from Japan that had 48K original miles (apparently Japan's smog solution is that when the motor get's 30k miles, they have to replace it with a new motor, so American import shops buys these motors and we reap!! Btw, anybody want a good original motor , PM me, I'll hook ya up)). Anyway, So, 6800rpm is good. That's cool, 'cause goin' thru the gears, I'd have to really get on it to get up around 6k rpm.
