*Disclaimer* My 930 is built for VA country road / mountains driving. Minimal long distance highway use. After saying that....

Last year I was looking at short gearing choices for my 930 trans including replacing the R&P. The R&Ps are pricey and require specialized setup so it's not really any cheaper vs. buying individual gears. So I ended up moving the stock 3rd gear to the 4th gear position, then going with aftermarket short gears for 1, 2, and 3.

California Motorsports did the work for me including sourcing the gears. The short gears have significantly minimized turbo lag and has simply made the car a blast to drive on the street.

If I did a lot of long distance highway driving or track use I wouldn't have setup my trans up this way or I would have gone with a G50 5-speed.

For me it's perfect!
