OK, I may not be the best person to be answering this, but I think you need to rethink this. The .82 and .77 are going to give you a lower RPM than a .91 5th gear at the same speed. The Richmond with the .77 being the lowest of the three.

I think his point is that a .82 fifth will be drop his RPMs too much. At 60MPH, he'd be turning only 1800 RPMs. That's probably too low unless he has a really mild camshaft.
