Seeing as the speedo in my car is optimistic, I'd guess around 68mph

Yeh, mine sits at about 71 at 3k in 6th gear. Also my old 03 zx3 was a five speed and at 3k rpms it also sat at 71mph.

its not too bad. cause you can set the cruise on the freeway and still climb hills like a champ and the rpms dont even budge. if it was much lower id think the rpms would dive

In fact, 6th isn't even an OD as it is.
6th gear is 1.08:1.

I agree, with the output of the engine I think it's actually pretty good. It's still in the efficiency range of the engine but still makes enough power to pass on the highway without downshifting and can climb hills without down shifting either. I think it was around 2500 the car would bog anytime you tried to accelerate in 6th.
