my street turbo was geared for 145 MPH.. to me that was plenty . Car was much more responsive. Could probably keep your stock first and change the top three gears. 915 box could be risky even with a stock turbo motor.. it's the Tq when that sucker gets on boost.
This is EXACTLY what was done to my tranny. I have a final drive ratio of 5:1, I believe, and the top speed in 4th gear is around 145 m.p.h. With 400 HP, the acceleration is simply amazing. At 60 mph in 3rd gear, you go straight to red line and hit 110 mph in maybe 3 seconds, at the most. At 70 mph, in fourth gear you can hit 120 mph in perhaps 4 seconds. I cut my boost back because I was spinning my tires in fourth gear.

Totally awesome. I wouldn't change my gearing for anything else, but then again, I am not using the car at the track. If I did, I would find a track with a 145 mph top speed!
