Running 3.42 a rear end right now/2000 rpms @60mph. It is one of the higher rear end ratios avalible for the 6.7" rear.

So, if you would still consider to get a higher final ratio, getting tyres with a higher final diameter of the wheel-rim set would be the way

Well guys I haven't posted in a long time but I still think of economy. The rebuild is going alot slower than I wanted it to.
I have done a couple of free mods while the car is apart. Removed the power steering pump, and looped the hoses, and removed all the Ac lines /compressor ect... The only belt driven items on the motor now are the warer pump and altenator.
I also figured out why the car wasn't running correctly, the cam was off a tooth, so the powerband was shifted, also the tps needs to be adjusted or replaced. Anyhoo the car should be on the road again soon,

Holy crap, I just noticed this. You have 2000rpm at 60mph??? No modern Toyota transmission for 4 bangers is that tall.

When I first bought the car I was expecting 3.90 gearing or so. The gearing imo is perfect, engine has alot of torque but not alot of horsepower. 2.4l truck engines are that way
If/when I loose this engine I may go to a 4age 16v motor

Well the motor in this car is, an 85+ 22re, not the pre 85 that I thought, previous owner swaped all the 84 components to the 85 motor.any hoo the 84 chain I got is to long. 98links not 96 links that the 85 needs. Ordering the new chain tomorrow.

4a motor is a bit old though, and iron block :/

If I wanted a 1.5L-1.6L engine available in America right now, I'd grab a 1NZ and do a little building (costs money of course but I think it's worth it to have a unique, peppy engine), stronger rods, high comp pistons, cams, valve springs. In theory that should be good for 160hp or more NA depending on how aggressive the cams are, but it needs a new ECU most likely to get best results.

With 3.9 gearing you'd still be in pretty good shape. 4.3 rear end + 0.815 "cruise" gear +tiny tire diameter= disaster. I think the AP2 S2k's F22C with the 1.2something primary reduction and 4.1 F/D is the only 4 banger that's even less efficient on the highway (S2000s should have more drag than the Toyota stable with their short tail and convertible top). The 2ZZ + C60s are probably a little better because they have shortened stroke and MMC liner = less friction at the high revs.
