What I'd like would be putting in STi RA gears into that FXT tranny. It'd give you a taste of lets say a JDM STi Version 6 RA tranny. Gearing makes a big difference. My friend's VF39'd/TBE/Stg2 Sti ECU Forester XT just pulls from me when he WOTs it from a 40mph in comparison to my JDM 6spd even when I brake boost at 40mph.
