    Default Z18XE Owners please

    Hello, a quick question, I have a 04 1.8 sxi,the only issue I have with this car is,, it seems low geared in 5th, my last vec a 2000 1.6 was doing 2600rpm at 70mph and felt quite a bit more relaxed than my sxi, which is doing 68mph at 3000 rpm. so What rpm is your 1.8 petrol doing at 70 mph?
    I have a rpm calculator which tells me my gear box is a f17 wide ratio, but I have been in a another 1.8sxi (same year as mine) and his was doing 75mph at 3000 rpm, we both checked or speedo with a sat nav, and found them to be near spot on ot 60mph,

    SO the question,, what rpm is your 1.8 petrol doing at 70 mph?,

    thanks ANT.

    my sxi is the same mate, 3000rpm @70mph.
    it uses the same box as the sri in the sxi, closer ratios with slightly better 0-60 times.
