Icon5 RPM/Speed velocity question

I have a 98 (Auto) and 99 Accord (manual)4 cyl and my dad has an 02 civic (auto)
On all three, 2500 rpm gives me about 60 MPH.

On my 97 prelude (manual), 3000 RPM on 5th gear gets me about 60 MPH. Is this normal?? I did replace a cv/axle awhile ago.

Re: RPM/Speed velocity question

Yes, the gearing in the accord tranny and prelude tranny are slightly different.

Also, the automatic trannies can't really be compared because you can't compare apples to oranges =P.

I believe the gearing on the prelude manual transmission is shorter than the gearing on the accord manual transmission, which would account for you needing more engine rotation to achieve the same vehicle speed.

I could be wrong about this though, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: RPM/Speed velocity question

You also need to remember that the gear ratios on Honda's four speed autos are rediculously long for no apparant reason.
