    I can't tell you anything about this engine. There should be a "S" code on the engine ID sticker. That will tell you which one it is. If you can't find any info on this older engine then a safe bet for RPMs would be 3350 no load.

    I think if you recheck the spec it should reads Fb460VAS31. The engine was set from the factory at 3350. This may not be the original engine thogh, this engine is capable of turning 3600 all day.
