Yep, pretty sweet deal. If nothing else it's great for minimizing drivetrain loss and keeping RPM's under 2k when accelerating. However, it's geared pretty short for "performance"... it is a Mazda after all, so they gotta keep up their Zoom-Zoom image I guess, lol. @ 65MPH I'm floating around 3k RPM, not terrible, but not great either. But can *safely* keep it around 50-55 on most highways around here though so not a huge deal.
