    I'm new to the honda thing, so I hope this doesn't sound too retarded. I've got a 92 hatch with a JDM B16A swap. It has the S1 trans. At 75 mph on the highway, it's spinning 4300 RPM. Does this sound right?? I know it's only about half way through the RPM range but, DAMN!!!!! Is that going to hurt anything? Thanks

    you should sit around 4400 rpm at 80mph in 5th gear.. its completely normal.. if you want better freeway gearing, put in an LS 5th gear
