well since Ive changed my tranny twice (orignal and now a 96) the 93 is limited to what it can do. 1st 20mph max
2nd 30mph
3rd 57mph
4th 70ish
5th no clue. never had it that fast, maybe 112 or so those little 1.9s tach our really easily.. mine dont but the stock ones do.

1st about 25mph
2nd about 55mph
3rd about 80mph
4th about 95-100mph (need to shift for power)
5th Stupid fast.


BTW I should mention I'm running an SPI so my powerband is a little nicer.

I'm shifting at around 5300rpm for max power in most of my speed numbers there. 5500rpm at the latest.

there are different numbers because ppl like to round up or their speedos are wrong.

in my case, i have different 2, 3, 4th gears than anybody else unless they too have the Fuel Saver package.

I can spin less rpm per mph, so i would accelerate slower given equal weight and power, but my top speed is at least 10% faster.

There can be more than one correct answer. Each car will be slightly different on how it's tuned. Most cars limit on the RPM's and if your car is in bad condition, it's not gonna go too fast. I know in my automatic I find it topped out at like 160 or 165km/h but I know people that say they've done like 180 or 185km/h

I'd go out and check again but it's raining cats and dogs and the state patrol would frown upon it.

If you reach top speed quick enough, they won't catch ya... it'd be a fun experiment! LOL!

Maybe after the headwork and turbo just for the thrill of it.
