Haha, my '90 would turn over 1,800 RPM at about 70mph with the stock 2.73 gears. I loved taking that car on the interstate and long roads.

2800-3100 rpms @ 65-70mph 1:1 w/28" tire 3.73's. With the 3.27 gear was 26-2800rpm 65-70mph. Not that bad really and definitely a c4 or th400 will be faster than an aod/e/4r70 they soak allot of hp compaired but some people love their OD, depends how many miles a year you gonna really see if under 10K **** it go with the 1:1 !

My speedo isn't right on, but I have 3.27's and an AODE...In OD, converter locked, I'm seeing about 1600 @ 60 (should be close).

1,900 RPM @ 70MPH on the highway. Lovin' it too. Thing gets better gas mileage than my 4-cyl Ranger

Edit: I still have 2.73's I have a set of 3.27's in the shed but I don't feel like putting them in

Yeah my gas mileage was pretty sweet on my AOD when it was stock. With 3.55 and AOD it was getting around 21 mpg. After putting in 3.73 gears I was seeing about 19-20 on the highway - slight drop. With the T5 not much difference. I really like the 3.73's and a T5 on the highway because I can leave it in 5th and put the hammer down to pass traffic.
