it's not a R:S ratio that they went right off the bat 'we're going to rev the tits off this' of course, i agree.
then again, a B18C has a 1.58:1 R:S and revs to 8000rpm (same for the H22A, 1.58, and it will rev like mad if you let it).. same for many other honda motors. which is strange considering the S2k's 1.82 and obvious design intent... heck, the RB26 and jz motors have a 1.64 and 1.65 respectively... yet the RB30 has a 1.76... and the 30 is designed to be a lower rev high torque, yet the 26 is the exact opposite. (though of course, again with enough money and the right parts, an RB30/32 will, of course, rev it's tits off, same with a jz) "
