If you track the car then trans gear swaps might make better sense.

Really there is no easy option concerning price!
Thanks Chris

One thing to consider about a final drive ratio change is if you use the car for a lot highway driving (like me) . . . cruising at 80mph with +/- 3K RPM (70 is about 27-2800) is absolute bliss - I couldn't tolerate higher RPM cruising.
