    that sounds about right to me,

    Think i usually at about 3000rpm in 5th at 70. (I'm on standard 16's with 205/50/16.)

    my 1.8 (z18xe) is at 3250rpm at 70 mph in 5th gear on 215-40-17 tyres. these are the correct size for 17 inch wheels.
    16 inch wheels would be 205-50-16

    southwest astra you tyres are slightly too small mate. need to go up a profile to 40 as your speedo is a bit out.
