I would love to have a 3.45 and 5 speed in my manual! It would haul!
Friggin auto with two second gears! >:(
Sorry, I probably should have explained myself better...
I am talking about the stage 2 cam. Mine also 'revs like a bastard compared to the stocker', but what I was trying to illustrate is that, whilst it revs hard, the power increase up top isn't anywhere near the increase down low... So therefore, it would be a good idea to harness some of this low down torque, instead of wasting it all by fitting a ratio that is too short. And, when coupled with a 5 speed, I think excessive wheelspin would be a serious problem during a hard launch (I'm bordering on that now!).
Hope this explains what I meant a little better!
