Re: 1600 GTL gear whine
+ on shifting above 3,500.
The higher the better and the smoother it shifts into the next gear. I'm not really used to shifting that high, but it all really comes together much better at a higher RPM. Between 1 and 2, It really makes a difference if you pre-load the shifter.
Pre-Loading = putting a little pressure on the shift lever it before shifting. I don't understand this, but it works!
To me the whine is like the turbo sound of a very expensive sports car. I really can't get enough of it. and out on the open highway, wow!
