what final drive ratio do you have? it's encoded in your VIN.

I have a 3.7 final drive which with my overdrive 5 speed runs about 4000 rpm in 5th at 80

you could hit 60 at 7000 in 2nd ( don't try this unless you have a GX head )
5000 in 3rd
3000 in 4th
2000 in 5th

I think there are as many as 3 gear sets for the 5speed and maybe 4 final drives, 3.5,3.7,3.9,4.2 - someone had one in the 6:1 ratio.

I wish i had the vin, its a nissan A series engine and tranmission in a suzuki products, i know my suzuki runs a 1.4 reductions in the case, then a 3.73 in the diffs. You wouldnt happen to know the first gear ratios on the available 5 speeds, and possibly some helpful id tips on the tranny.
