That's all that changed recently, but the car is moderately, some might say heavily, modified. I cruise 60 mph at 1900 rpms and kill it. There are dudes that woukd call that lugging the engine, but they suffer from an imprecise definition of lugging.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
