1995 Legacy L Wagon

Default Legacy Transmission Options

Ok here is the thing. I have my 1995 Legacy that I will eventually be putting money into, one of the first thing I am getting is going to be seats from an Impreza probably WRX for the bolstering although I am going to cheat and go look at some used ones tomorrow to get an idea exactly what I want.

My big question is until I have the couple thousand to put into a better engine, is there a transmission that I can get and bolt up to what I currently have (2.2L 4 Cyl. 5Spd Manual) that is either a 6 speed or geared differently because right now at freeway speeds (55 most of oregon, but 65-70 on a stretch of 205 I drive) I never drop below 3k RPM and it is just killing my Hwy gas milage, my opinion the car would benefit from a 6 speed but I dunno if that is an option.

Other thought was maybe re-gearing it to help bring the RPM down, theoretically cruising around at 70 is about the only time I would like to reach close to 3k but that is probably not going to happen.
