The 1.4 gearbox is still pretty high ratios, at 70mph 4th is 3800rpm (not bad) but 5th is 3000rpm which makes hills a change down with a loaded car. I wish 5th was more like 3500rpm or maybe 3300. The old 1.6 Rovers were about right, I recall the same ratios as my MKII Golf GTI. Seems strange Honda hindering high revving engines with tall gear ratios, I reckon I could knock half a second off the 0-60 with a close ratio box.

about the box off the 1.3 eg civics that should be better then if it'll stand up to the increased power.
