I was going 180 km/h and my RPMs were at about 5100 +/-(if I remember correctly) the top speed isnt very high in the MTX's... simply because you'll run out of gear really fast, even though the engine could use a 6th. I'm not sure why, but 3rd & 4th are pretty close together (they make it sound like a close ratio tranny when shifting from 3 to 4!!)

The auto, on the other hand was able to go to 225 km/h and rev at only 4900...(this was a GT ATX) if only we had the fifth gear of an ATX!

Okay, I have lower profile tires than stock, 205/50/15's instead of 195/60/15's <or is it 65? I don't remembeR> But, anyway, indicated speed isn't the same as stock. But, 1st gear can go up to about 30, 60 or so in second, 90 in 3rd, about 120 in 4th, and I've never redlined in 5th, but, I hit 140 mph or so <indicated> And I still had about 500 rpms left, so 145 or so?

I've got an 89GT and these are my top speeds in the gears that I've reached red line in.

1st - 28mph
2nd - 58mph
3rd - 88mph
4th - 118mph
It looks like there's a pattern here? I haven't red lined my 5th gear, not enough road, plus it got really scary goin over 120mph... When I dropped it into 4th from 3rd, my car took off faster than any other gear. I have the gear ratios for the 89 models at my house, I'll post em when I get home. I'm at work right now...ahhh state workers....hehehe

info for ya

The gear ratios depend on if it is a turbo or not.

Non-turbo:
1st: 3.307
2nd: 1.833
3rd: 1.233
4th: 0.914
5th: 0.717

Turbo:
1st: 3.250
2nd: 1.772
3rd: 1.194
4th: 0.926
5th: 0.711

Final gear ratio is the same for both at 4.105:1
These numbers are straight out of the Mazda shop manual, there are not any top speeds listed though
