What is road speed? Rpm of course depends on how fast you are going, and in what gear.

4000 rpm is normal for a 3spd automatic (3AT). a manual transmission would turn 3200-3500 rpms at the smae speeds.

The subaru engine has a short crank and large pistons, and is designed to run in the mid rpm range

You will want to run 85w-90 in both diffs. Doesn't matter what brand, gear oil is gear oil.

Don't worry about asking questions, thats what this place is for and thats how you get to know your car.
