You don't have to worry about blowing a timing belt because the Mirage has a timing chain. Torque peak on the 3A92 is 4200 rpm so I wouldn't be worried about humming along between 3-4k rpm. In fact it's probably harder on the engine to lug around like the CVT likes to do. That's why I've never worried about when crusing at 60 mph coming up to a hill and the CVT will rev up to 4800-5000 before dropping down to between 3000-3500 rpm to climb a grade. Let 'er rev !!!
