first gear ratio

hey im just wondering

is it possible to change the first gear ratio of an ef auto and by that im not talking about higher diff ratio just the gearbox itself, if its possible i wouldnt mind doing that rather than getting a bigger diff . i would change the first gear to about 3.25 same as the manual instead of the 2.45 it has now.

Not really possible because the gear sets work with each other. If you were to change the 1st gear then the rest would change as well. Its hard to explain how autos work, take a look at Theres a good section on automatic transmissions.
