I think it would be great if we could replace the overdrive gear with one that would have the engine turning at about 750 to 1000 rpm's less.

Cruise at 75 mph at just under 3000 rpm. I think that would give me about 38-40mpg at 75 mph.

Any of you really smart guys or girls know how to do it?
Opinions please...

There is/was a guy in Italy making a higher 5th gear replacement kit.
Of course it was pretty much a total engine tear down job.

Here is another thread on it...


I noticed the link that I had there for this in my links pages is dead now as is the one posted in that thread.
