If fourth gear will take you over 100 mph, it does not sound like you will be using fifth gear very often. It sounds like fifth gear will lug the engine at highway speeds.
The engine will NOT lug at highway speeds. Maybe my definition of "lug" is not the same as yours....I NEVER have lugging issues...that beast has way too much torque to lug. Now a HD or a Boulevard..that's another story.
