Re: no overdrive??

Only automatics have OD.....

If you have a 5 speed, you got 5 gears and a reverse. I have never heard of manuals having an OD.

Can you post where you read that 5spd have OD?? I'm a little curious.

Re: no overdrive??

The fifth gear ratio is overdrive...by selecting it you have activated the overdrive. Have a look at the gear ratios on the spec sheet.

Re: no overdrive??

There's no OD on the 5th gens. 5th gear is as high as it goes, and yes the RPM's run high, but they're geared that way. Stop looking for a 5th Gen MT with OD because you look silly; like the guy I met with the 2004 turbo Prelude.

Re: no overdrive??

They sell as many 5th gen 5 speeds with OD as, they do 5th gens with 4 Doors.....NONE

Fifth gear is the over drive.

Re: no overdrive??

Technically, overdrive is anything smaller than a 1:1 (direct drive) ratio -- at 0.812:1, 5th gear is the overdrive on the manual 'boxes. 4th gens are just slightly more forgiving at 0.787:1, but IIRC, make up for it by running a slightly different final drive ratio. Either way, you're looking at about 50 rpm/mph in 5th, which is pretty standard for most modern NA 4 cylinder engines.

That's different from the "overdrive" button on some autoboxes, which engages an additional gearset mounted on the back of the transmission. On some older cars, manual transmissions have a similar overdrive setup -- the 3-speed manual Chevy I learned to drive on had an O/D actuated by a cable under the dash (and could be used in any gear). I later owned a Volvo where it was an electric switch on the gear stick, but only worked in 4th, so it was effectively just a 5th gear.

But we've already told you that there is no OD.... 5th gear is it, it doesn't hit anything beyond that after you've engaged vtec.

Driving in 5th gear.....speed keeps going at a constant until you hit vtach yO!

Re: no overdrive??

Fifth gear IS overdrive. Any gear with a ratio of less than 1.00:1 is considered overdrive.

Jeez.
