Revs at highway speed...
Hey so the one thing I wish I could give my Legend more than anything would be a 5th gear! I have a type 2 '93 coupe automatic and I'd say at 75 mph it turns over at 3,100 rpm or so. I mean, I like to hustle down the highway naturally, and somewhat fret over the fact that I'm consistently around 3,500 rpm's or so, more for the possible wear 'n tear on the engine than gas mileage issues.
I mean my car has 202k on the clock, but the car doesn't burn any oil, has synthetic Mobil 1 high mileage in it, has been fully tuned up and maintained great since I got it (even had the mechanic clean out the EGR valve 'n intake 'cause mine still hasn't blown its head gasket) and just overall seems to run insanely good for a car that's been around the world 8 plus times. So lately I've just been trying to convince myself that "ehhh whatever Honda engines are designed to run at higher revs as a whole 'n mine's in great condition."
So... what I'm really asking, y'know, is revving it this high for extended periods actually known to wear the engine out if the oil is fresh n everything else is tuned up?
