Interesting... here's the ILX for comparison.

Gear Ratios:
  • 1st: 3.27
  • 2nd: 2.04
  • 3rd: 1.43
  • 4th: 1.07
  • 5th: 0.83
  • 6th: 0.65
  • Reverse: 3.58
  • Final Drive: 4.77
Wouldn't that mean that 6th isn't taller? Or does final drive factor into that a bit? My one complaint about the ILX gearing is that it's over 3k on the highway cruising in 6th. I almost never use 5th, and always wished I had a higher gear.

It does factor in. The Integra has a lower 6th gear relative to the engine, but a higher final drive. If multiplying the two is the correct math, then in 6th gear, it should be cruising at ~96% of the ILX’s rpm for the same highway speed.
