The final drive gearing seems to be a mystery to me?
I know that there are several different 5 speeds (3 at least, the 3 cyl, the 4 cyl 8 valve and the twin cam)
But is there any info on the autos?
I have a few lying around.
My wifes car is a 99 Metro, it has the 4 cyl, 16 valve single cam motor ( goofy)
And it is really reving at highway speeds!
Is it possible to change the gearing? Maybe a twin cam auto?

There is no practical way to get those rpms down with the autos. I'm pretty sure the 3cyl models have a taller ratio yet. They scream away but don't seem to be much worse for wear for it, so I'd just drive it.
