If I'm nailing the fuel, I'm in second at 4000 or so.
On a hill at full acceleration, 2nd gear takes the car to 70 or so.

I could comment but mine would be different than yours- my car is a '98 S70 T5 with an upgraded ECU- It's very fast!

If still in top gear, about 2200-2300 at 65. It it kicks down, mine seems to pin at 3000 with a lot of torque even on a fairly good incline where top gear won't hold the speed. I really like the broad torque curve of this engine and the way the transmission uses it.
