    4age powered KE25. big cams, haltech computer, other shit.

    1st - i barely use it unless i have to, ive never hit the limiter though in 1st so i dunno.
    2nd - 130-140 and the last time i looked at the tacho it was around 9k, the guy i bought the car off reckons he has revved it to 10k.
    3rd - the speedo only goes to 160 so i dont know how fast i was going

    top speed in mine (t series 4.3 with t-50 box) worked out to be 213kph i think. Also with the sprinter having the areo of a brick you prob don't want to exceed the 200 mark to much anyway

    In first gear every 1000rpm = 10kph in my car. So if I rev to redline I can probably do 75kph in first if I wanted to this is with a 4.3 and a TRD gearset
