I used to think 1st was too tall til I went EFI, now its just fine and I have to shift fast to stay off the rev limiter. If I ever get around to it I plan to shorten 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

For what it's worth,

I did my trans about 2 1/2 years ago, all new bearings, all new syncro rings, new friction rings(balk rings), gaskets & fluids. @$2500 in parts(including the labor for the syncro rings). I did my own R&R plus disassembly & re-assembly.

I did not need any hard parts, like gears or shafts, just all the wear parts.

I also added a short shift kit from our host while I was at it, shifts great, drives great, been 40K miles now, still going strong!

Also for what it's worth, a rear axle ratio that tops out around 150-160 instead of around 200MPH is ideal for our roads. On the longest straights @ Road America even the highest modified 600+HP twin turbos most do not get much over 160 with a dedicated lightweight Porsche rece car, that is built way beyond a street driven car. Also at around a hundred MPH ( there goes your street license if cought ) you re still around 4500 RPM, a very nice runnung RPM unless you just want gas mileage. And the running sound is amazing.
