Yes it would only change the gearing ratio. If you are the type to dump the clutch and be aggressive with the throttle at low RPMs then you're just as likely to break it. With the shorter final drive you'll increase RPM faster which will technically reduce shock load but it's a crap shoot as to whether it will actually make a difference as there's so many other variables to account for. Having owned one, I will say the gearing is far more fun to drive. I never felt line the 3.9 was suited for the 5 speed personally.
