speedo gear off the top of my head, and unless a shop is do'n the gears or ya did it before, which i doubt sence your asking, youll need special tools. you could get a turbo coupe auto rear and get disk rear brakes probley for the cost of new gears. and anyway, yes gears make a big difference. my car takes off like a bat out of hell with the 5 speed and 3.73s im go'n down to 3.55s.

I've heard this before; "If you have to ask, you probably shouldn't be doing it yourself." This is probably one of those things to leave to the shop (installing gears). now the installation of a TC rear is something that's commonly done and doesn't need a shop to do

You really can't get the backlash right... I've tried to install gears like 30894032908 times. Everytime the gears just got ate up. So i swapped the whole rear. It's reliable now.
