    lower gear ratios? pros and cons?

    pretty soon I'm gonna have to have my 6 speed rebuilt. car dynoed at 560 awhp and tranny dosent like it. was curious about lowering the gear ratios to reduce stress on the transmission. 1. where can i find gear sets with the lower ratio. 2. is it worth switching or should i stay with stock?

    The stress will be there if they are short or long...shortening the gears will require you to have even faster response when it comes to driving and shifting and with 560 AWHP...thats the last thing you want is to make your gears shorter. Focus on getting stronger gears, like the PPGs for example but they are pricey.
