shift light?

in my 95 2.5l 5spd a shift light comes on at like 2k rpms. im in forth gear by the time im at 35 mph. is the light just for economy driving? or how high can i really go?

1500 and only get to 2000 i don't like high revs. I'm a little too used to old small and big blocks that never got that high, so i don't know were I'm supposed to be at but that just feels right to me.

Don't worry, mine does the same thing. That doesn't stop me from hitting 4 or 5k on the interstate. Bulb out sounds good.

the shift light is kinda like texting. if you syes are on the light your not watching the road. ignore it, cover it, paint over it, take the bulb out or have your passenger tell you when to shift.

You need a light to tell you when to shift? Can't be trying to steer, shift, and text plus watch a dumb light. Just listen to the motor, and you'll just know from the sound.
