    ey i just swapped my 98 spec itr motor and trans on my 00 civic hatch

    i love everything about it except the 5th gear highway rpms

    i love my 15s and i love my 195/45 t1rs but i swear at 4000 rpms in at 62mph
    and at 4500 rpms i’m at 70mph..

    shoukd i consider doing an os 5th gear?? is it bad to cruise at such high rpms for hours if driving far??

    No not bad as long as you keep up to date with gearbox oil change and engine oil change, keep I on temperature but hondas are happier at 4000rpm + only down side is if it's loud .
