Started with one out of a 2007 2.5i Impreza. (3.9:1) Now a 4X-TY754VFBBA, (US Impreza RS my02-03)(4.111 changed to 4.44 r&p). I also have a TY754VCBCA.(US Legacy Outback my01-02)(3.9:1). Looks like only difference in gears are 1st and 5th, which  don't  matter to me.

just comparing gearing. mine is a 4.43 r&p with a 2.21 1st and supposedly 1.67 2nd. i have a gut feeling my 2nd is closer to 1.55 or a tad deeper as there is a noticeable jump from 1st to 2nd as opposed to 2nd to 3rd in my rail. i cannot pull any hills in 2nd unless i am atleast 3k rpm and in boost. that would be 56 mph mathematically which puts me on the edge of my comfort zone on some of the dune tops  ;D. that why i down shift and just hammer 1st most of the time. then again mathematically my 1st gear , at rev limiter (6500 rpm), tops out at 62 mph. i have never watched my gps for actual ground speed . with drag and wheel slip, prob closer to 45 to 50 mph. i know i am geared to high, the only reason it is even usable is my current turbo. your rail seems to move right along in the video's but with a n/a motor and your gear range ( 2nd 2.062 .. 3rd 1.448 .. 4.44r&p) i personally understand what you were saying about wanting 3rd deeper.  ;D

but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
