I only recently learned why my HF screams @ highway speeds.
Apparently there were 2 different transmissions available for
the HF (the "49 state" and the other one). My last HF had
the good tranny, which turned @ 2250RPM at 70MPH. The one I
have now is about 500RPM higher. I'd really like to swap that
5th gear for the taller one...but where can I get one of
Could be worse I have a 1986 HF with the High Altitude Trans and I have 3000RPM at 70MPH. One gen 1 CRX's (84-87) there were three final gear options
2.95:1 ratio in the 49 state cars;
3.55:1 ratio in the California cars; and
4.06:1 ratio in the hi-altitude cars.
Like it has been said before the 5th gear is not what changes it is the final gear.
What year CRX do you have?
