With my Honda Civic's 3.54 inch stroke, one of the online calculators suggests that my engine is in the ft/min range you talk about when the engine is turning 1700-2000 RPMs. Interestingly, as I pointed out in my earlier response in this thread, that's one of the ideal rev ranges that I use MUCH the time. Now I might begin to use it nearly ALL the time as an experiment.
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.
