Speeds at certain RPM and gears.

Hello everyone,
I am trying to determine if my speedo is off on my stock 5th gen. I am curious if some people can report back what their speeds are at 3k rpm in the various 1-5th gears.

Thank you very much
Celbii

Toss in a GPS, would be the most useful way to check it since most will differ based on wheel size.

Yeah I know but till I can get a GPS I just wondered when people went out for a drive if they would mind noting the speed at 3k rpm in gears as I feel as if my speedo is around 10 mph off.

Try http://www.precisionsite.com/auto-x/tools/ and look up the pre-loaded figures for a 5th gen Prelude.

Re: Speeds at certain RPM and gears.

it's also going to depend on if you got a 5spd or automatic. i've almost never heard of a speedometer being off by a specific number. it's usually a percentage. every speedometer, even from the factory is going to be of by usually 5% or less.
