Can it make 300K?

1991 Acura Integra RS 2dr Hatchback
I affectionately call this my "ratcar" because I've had it for over 17 years. Has 217,000+ miles on it. Replaced all the usual parts plus cv-joints, radiator, antenna, radio, struts/springs. But, the engine is original and the clutch is still the one that come with the car. It is an awesome car.
Engine power. Builds up to 6,000 rpm and this car was a real rocket back in '91 when few cars were made to perform this way for only $14,000. Cornering is superb with the right tires and what it lacks in power, it makes up for this way.
Better brakes would help. Also could use a sixth gear to bring down those 70-mph revs from 3500 to 2900.
