@azgearhead: Wow 3000 rpm at 50MPH is pretty crazy! I hope that was before the gear swap!
About the weight...I would only worry about that if I had a lot of stop and go
traffic. ( I don't) As a matter of fact I noticed with my car that if I have some
extra weight on board,it coasts a lot longer and gets me over small hills where otherwise I would have to restart my engine. Even after fill up it's noticeable.
Of course during acceleration the extra weight hurts MPG but my rout is mostly highway. Just my experience..: )
