Matt,
According to the manuals your 2+2 has the same 4-spd and rear differential as the coupe.
That means that originally you had a 3.545 differential which would give you about 80 mph at 4,000. Even installing the earlier 3.364 ratio would only get you to about 85 mph at 4,000.
something isn't right here.

Kane,
For him to know that he's doing 90 I would asume that his speedometer would be indicating that. The taller tire speed increase would not be reflected on the speedometer.
