What is the top speed of the SX 4 door with a 6 speed?

I attempted to reach it but chickened out at 110, fear of cops at 5:30 AM.

It must take forever to get to that speed... 98% of the time I'm satisfied with the car's power, but when I get the urge to have a little bit of fun, ouch, that thing is slow as balls. :(

To accelerate at highway speeds, i have to downshift to to 5th or 4th to get any kind of acceleration. Trying to pass in 6th gear feels like i am driving a minivan.

well 6th is a tall gear its set up that way to give the car plenty of room for higher speeds and keep rpms down..
if you get a turbo or some other big mods your going to be very glad its set up with such tall gears.
