    I think it would be funner as a daily driver because you accelerate faster with shorter ratios

    that is true, what about freeway type stuff though would you run out of gear in 3rd and fourth to fast(keeping stock 5th)

    morning peeps,

    saints row 2 is stealing my life.. and MFactory gears are pretty nice i hear.. i went with STi RA but either set is good till you break the 350-375whp range even then they are still good as long as you dont dump the clutch or something silly.

    which can happen pretty quick what about the gap between mfactory 4th and stock 5th? you think it would be a problem?
    EDIT and you might mot be able to use 3rd on the freeway.

    whats your ratios like compared to stock. i have the 2 sitting in front of me but how does it feel for a DD.

    here are some numbers i have found:
    mfactory
    1st - 3.270 2nd - 2.286 3rd - 1.667 4th - 1.238 5th - 0.958 (Optional)
    stock 5spd
    1st - 3.454 2nd - 1.947 3rd - 1.366 4th - 0.972 5th - 0.738
    ra gear set
    1st - 3.083 2nd - 2.062 3rd - 1.545 4th - 1.151 5th - 0.825
    Chalak Gearset
    1st - 3.180 2nd - 1.940 3rd - 1.350 4th - 0.966 5th - 0.740

    i read that for the RAs you have to switch your 1st maybe 2nd syncros to the older stay for the gears to work.


    what new with everyone? ooige did you get your car washed? hawk have you found anything out about those seats?

    No one knows anything about those seats so i will stick with sparco most likely. I wish we could get better designed synchros in our 5 speeds...... Even ppg does not offer them, wtf. We should just tell mfactory to make the first and second straight cut and be done.

    Good afternoon, everyone. Almost blew up my bugeye earlier this week...
    Heard a funny squealing sound, turns out to be timing belt tensioner pulley is bad. Sooo.. brand new belt (just replaced at 200k ) and some pulleys later and I should be good to go. I'm going to stop going to meets, they seem to be hexing me.

    dang to bad know one has heard of them. them look pretty good for the price. that would me sweet if they did straight cut 1-2 they would be pretty strong. uuaghh the ratio thing is bugging me today haha i want to drive a car with mfactory gears and see what i think. not that i need any real soon or can afford them but it would be nice to know.
