having the gearing I do helps me with acceleration but when it comes to cruising on the freeway, I am in 5th gear @ 80mph @ ~4k rpm so the car is screaming. I will eventually switch out the current 5th gear (.825) for a regular wrx 5th (.738...I think). the downside to not doing it now is not having funds available. its ~1200 for a tranny job... thats 1200 more than I can spend... lol

for the record though, I would rather have my transmission than a sti 6 speed
Why do you say that?
