What he said. ATS also makes a 4.928 FD for the GSR/ITR tranny (former moderater 1Greyteg uses one on his car) as well as a close gear ratio set for 3rd, 4th, and 5th gears.White98LS said:Only the JDM TYPE R has a lower final drive at 4.785:1. The USDM TYPE R IS THE SAME 4.40 that you already have. Don't waste your money buying a USDM one.
Mine does it, but I also don't have an electronic speedometer or fuel cut off like most hondas these days, but top speed is really important to me so how would I go about getting fast acceleration (besides adding more horsepower I know that much ) and keeping my high top speed?White98LS said:Yes it will lower your top speed potential since you can't go any faster than your rev limiter. With long stock gearing, you could modify your car so that it redlines in 5th.... but with a shorter final drive and thus a shorter 5th gear, that top limit will be lower. Most people don't realize that the vast majority of cars will simply stop accelerating before reaching redline in top gear.
i have an LS that I topped out at 135 once...which was b4 redline. once i put the GSR trans on (shorter gear ratios) i could only hit 129 at redlineI've redlined my 5th gear in my LS trans in my LS/VTEC and we were giong about 140 something, but will a shorter final drive ratio ultimately lower your top speed potential?

I know my car could have barely gotten to 137 even with the LS trans and i know my car isnt weak...i ran 15.7 on stock tires which i was told was decent for a i/e LSEven with GSR gearing and lowering the revlimit to lets say 7000 RPM, your gear limited top speed would be 137 MPH.So it sounds like your car is either weak or out of tune but, for certain it isn't the GSR gearing that limited your top speed to what you reported.
