Right on. Did you have the car for a while?

I am shifting into 5th at 50-55mph which comes out to 1700-1800rpm on the calculator. Might try going a bit lower. Plugging in what I found for your car comes out to 1370rpm. ~38hp/lb isn't going to get you places quickly! Stock turbo, direct injection, and a tune gets well into the 20s, really peppy without losing much efficiency.
