Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but this came up while searching for info on the E351 and I was wondering the same thing as the OP. To me it seems bizarre that my 95 Camry MT 5sfe doing 100 km/h (60mph) was revving at approx 2800rpm while my newer 2004 Camry with the 2azfe MT is revving at the same rpm in 5th at the same speed. We also have The same I4 Camry in an auto and it revs significantly lower than this at the same speed. What was the reasoning for this by Toyota? I don't like it at all.

Over a long trip or the life of the car the manual transmission version has completed many thousands more rpm to achieve the same distance at the same speed! Surely this can only mean more engine wear? Maybe the E351 was used in heavier vehicles like the RAV4 and this was Toyotas blanket approach. Anyway the gears are very short and it seems odd!
