Hello all,

I was looking through the Victoria catalog the other day and noticed that
the ring and pinion for the GT6 is a 3.27:1.  If I could swap this with my
3.89:1 it would result in a 14% reduction in engine rpm in top gear.  Is
this swap possible  and has anyone done it?  Was the effect on acceleration
so bad that it's not worth the trouble.  I figure that if a stock motor
doesn't have the torque to give decent performance I can modify it enough
to get the torque and power I need.  Anyone have any input?
