All the torque curves I've seen for TR engines are so darned flat 
that I don't think the need for lots of gears is as great as an 
engine with really peaky hp and torque. I think the number of gears 
most desirable should relate to how peaky your engine is and how you 
want to drive the car, plus how much you want to work on your car at 
the track. So what I'm saying is that if you get 165 hp and the band 
is about 1000 rpm wide, go for lots of gears. If you have 150 hp and 
a flat torque curve, use just a few gears and save the time repairing 
the electrics associated with the OD for girl watching.
