I need gears!

So after a 3-day weekend at Road America I have firmly decided that I need to do something about my stock 4-speed. Worn syncros aside, hitting 4th gear is like putting the damn thing in overdrive... it just slowly builds speed. As a result I probably am leaving 10-15 mph on the longer straights.

Since I have converted my car to a coilover suspension and removed the sway bars, does a G50 conversion become significantly easier (baring the clutch conversion issues)? Frankly the thought of $10+k makes my stomach turn.

The alternatives are a short R&P, which I have sitting on the shelf now, or re-gearing the existing 4 gears.

A friend has a similar 930 to mine with shorter gears and damn does it pull like a freight train straight thru forth.

Any opinions or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
