2001 Legacy GT


I registered just to reply here. Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but I just want to thank you, subeman, for posting this. I just purchased an '01 Legacy GT 5 speed (absolutely love it!!) and will be doing an outrageous amount of highway driving with it in the next 4 years. I'll be commuting to grad school 160 miles a day. I think my car's stock 5th gear ratio is .85 - I'm at around 3.5k @ 75mph. The rpms are so high I feel like it's really stressing the engine. I'm going to try to ask my Subaru dealer if they are comfortable with changing my gear to the .738 from the WRX... the lower the better (there's nothing lower that fits, is there?).

Thanks again for the detailed post!
