The six speed in the SVT is at about the same rpm on the highway as the 5 speed due to being geared for the track.The 5 sp in the mk2 is the same as in the mk 1 and 1.5. The final drive may be slightly different but likely 65mph at around 3,000rpm on the highway is typical for 5th gear on most 4 cylinder cars I've driven.
