Gear ratios

Has anyone changed transmission &/or rear end gear ratios?

I have seen this issue come up on both sites and it gets little attention. With the effort being made to get torque to the wheels and the NA having a taller ratio than the turbo, I would have thought this would be a common swap. Maybe there isn't enough difference to justify the work/cost involved, but there doesn't seem to be any other reasonable way to get real low end torque without machine work on the motor. It would make first gear go by awfully quick if you needed to use it at all.

Just a bump to keep this active in the hopes that someone may be motivated to try something.
