The Pumpkin has a G50 installed by Dan Jacobs (via the PO Gary R). Fantastic as they also installed short gears in 2, 3 and 4. I rarely use 5th as she spends most of her time on the track (I can get to 5th at Heartland Park and Road America). Cost was about 11K and i think Dan gave Gary a break as there is lots of banging and fitting invloved (time = $$). Recommend you get someone with equal experience to do it or it could be your worst nightmare

I would try diffrent gears in your existing tranny first. If you use it on the street for driving distances, the 5th gear would be a real asset. otherwise a couple of new ratios may be just the ticket.
