my car sits at 1900 rpm when cruising at 100 kph. does this sound right for a 3.23 or 3.27 ratio diff? (i am unsure what ratio i have)

Thanks

out of my au at 100k's it sits on around 1800rpm, with 3.08 gears, and i 'think' with taller gears revs tend to sit a bit higher, so it sounds about right.

Also comes down to wheel/tyre sizes ... and if your speedo is reading correctly as well.

I have found with my current 235/45R17 tyres .... somehow have a larger rolling circumference than my previous 235/45R17 tyres (different brands ... different dimensions).

With the GPS I am finding a decent difference between GPS indicated and cluster indicated speed after the tyre change.
