I don't usually drive 65 but for your sake I did today and I was turning at about 2600...hope that helps! Not sure what tranny's are available for the '90 model. I know for the '91 on up the F22B1 engine and tranny combo (what I have) is a direct replacement. The prelude Type S even had a LSD...The H22 engines also fit but I don't think they're as FE.

My buddy had an '89 and he changed the fuel filter and increased his mileage considerably...if you haven't done that yet, I'd try it and see if it helps! Good Luck!
I'll try that. I already picked up a replacement O2 sensor off eBay ($10!), so I'll get a fuel filter as well. 34.2 mpg at the last fillup, and still working on it!
