Just curious as to why you would want to spend the cash on higher top speed instead of money on getting there faster. Cause i've hit 152 MPH in my 1G. Pretty fast if you ask me, only problem is that there aren't too many places too do it.

I owned a '90 FWD Turbo before my current '99 GSX.

Both cars are at 3000RPM @ 70mph. It seems the gearing is EXACTLY the same for 4th and 5th gears. Of course, 1st and 2nd are very aggresive in the GSX. SO I think they did a great job re-thinking the individual and overall gear ratios for the 2G AWDs.
