Evo Gearing Chart

This is good info so I figured I post it up in a separate thread.

This is assuming you are running stock sized tires on each car.

For gas milage considerations, here is a break down top gear RPM at various cruiseing speeds on the highway.

speed . . . AWD DSM. . . . . EVO VIII. . . . . EVO IX. . . . . EVO MR

55 . . . . . . . . 2425 . . . . . . . . 2365 . . . . . . . 2500 . . . . . . .2305

60 . . . . . . . . 2645 . . . . . . . . 2580 . . . . . . . 2730 . . . . . . .2515

65 . . . . . . . . 2865 . . . . . . . . 2795 . . . . . . . 2955 . . . . . . .2720

70 . . . . . . . . 3085 . . . . . . . . 3010 . . . . . . . 3185 . . . . . . .2930

75 . . . . . . . . 3310 . . . . . . . . 3230 . . . . . . . 3410 . . . . . . .3140

80 . . . . . . . . 3530 . . . . . . . . 3440 . . . . . . . 3640 . . . . . . .3350

85 . . . . . . . . 3750 . . . . . . . . 3660 . . . . . . . 3865 . . . . . . .3560


And for full throttle acceleration considerations, here is a break down of what speed you are going at the top of each gear just befor shifting to the next higher gear (assuming shifting at stock redline of 7,000 RPM) and what RPM you enter the next higher gear at.

Gear . . . . AWD DSM. . . . . . . EVO VIII. . . . . . . . EVO IX. . . . . . . . EVO MR

1st . . . . . 34.4 (3800) . . . . . 40.0 (4700) . . . . 42.1 (4900) . . . .39.8 (4700)

2nd . . . . . 62.8 (4650) . . . . 60.1 (5150) . . . . 60.1 (5200) . . . .59.6 (5200)

3rd . . . . . 94.8 (5250) . . . . . 83.2 (5150) . . . . 81.1 (5300) . . . .80.8 (5350)

4th . . . . . 126.9 (5600) . . . 113.6 (4900) . . . 106.9 (4850) . . . .105.3 (5500)

5th . . . . . 158.7 (N/A) . . . . 162.7 (N/A) . . . . 153.9 (N/A) . . . . .133.7 (5600)

6th . . . . . N/A (N/A) . . . . . . . . N/A (N/A) . . . . . . N/A (N/A) . . . . .167.1 (N/A)

Makes me wish I had the MR with 6-speed instead.

I've always wanted the 6-speed for the very reason of lower highway cruising RPM.

Even an Evo VIII would be nice compared to the IX. OH well.

Re: Evo Gearing Chart

I never realized IX gearing was so much shorter than VIII.

I sure did...


Just wanted to add that you can go around 126mph at the top of fourth on the MR tranny at 8500rpm.

One of the primary reasons why I wanted the MR w/ 6-speed. I was so spoiled with my TT Stealth and it's 6-speed. Barely turning 2000 RPM @ 70 MPH in 6th - great touring gear.

Re: Evo Gearing Chart

All scheides' talk about X gearing in his project thread got me to thinking about the gearing on those things. Is it much different from 8/9's? Anyone done a log good enough to add to this first post?

I recently had to look this up to configure the data logging software that I'm using at the track. My software just required gear ratios and max speeds at stock limiter.

Final drive: 4.68

Gear 1: 2.85 (43mph)
Gear 2: 1.95 (63mph)
Gear 3: 1.44 (85mph)
Gear 4: 1.09 (112mph)
Gear 5: 0.76 (161mph)

Re: Evo Gearing Chart

I'm just excited about the longer first gear in the Evo, I hate that every day when I drive my GSX. Evo's just about done.

X GSR gearing is the same as IX GSR gearing.

So the stock redline on X's must be 7500?

Re: Evo Gearing Chart

Indicated redline is 7k just like the DSM/8/9 and I think rev-limit is up around 7,500 just below where the 8/9's is.

High rpms at freeway speed is a frequent complaint...you know, from people that actually don't like sports cars.

Re: Evo Gearing Chart

Yeah I really don't see what the concern is. It's an Evo, not a Corolla. The high-revs aren't hurting the engine any and the gas mileage isn't that bad considering the nature of the car.

Re: Evo Gearing Chart

Figured I would post my findings for FWD DSM's. The 2g turbo FWD's 1st gear is a tiny bit shorter, but it makes less than 1/10th of a mph of difference.



This is also using stock sized tires on each car.


Speed . . . FWD Turbo DSM. . . . . FWD N/A 1g DSM

55 . . . . . . . . . 2250 . . . . . . . . . . 2375

60 . . . . . . . . . 2500 . . . . . . . . . . 2600

65 . . . . . . . . . 2750 . . . . . . . . . . 2800

70 . . . . . . . . . 2950 . . . . . . . . . . 3000

75 . . . . . . . . . 3200 . . . . . . . . . . 3250

80 . . . . . . . . . 3400. . . . . . . . . . 3450

85 . . . . . . . . . 3600. . . . . . . . . . 3675


And for full throttle acceleration considerations, here is a break down of what speed you are going at the top of each gear just before shifting to the next higher gear (assuming shifting at stock redline of 7,000 RPM) and what RPM you enter the next higher gear at.

Gear . . . . FWD Turbo DSM. . . . . . . FWD N/A 1g DSM

1st . . . . . . 39.8 (4125) . . . . . . . . . . 36.5 (4050)

2nd . . . . . . 66.9 (4850) . . . . . . . . . . 63.2 (4650)

3rd . . . . . . 96.6 (4900) . . . . . . . . . . . 95.5 (5100)

4th . . . . . .138.2 (5850) . . . . . . . . . . 130.7 (5650)

5th . . . . . .165.6 (N/A) . . . . . . . . . . . 162.3 (N/A)
