You do sacrifice top speed however. Our cars can easily go beyond the 200 mph mark, but not with those gears, you'll tap out around 160 mph. So skip the texas mile.

I love my set-up, but there is def a learning curve to it, and you will shift - a lot. This set-up really shines in the mid-range, 3rd and 4th gear are insane, and I've laughed at 458's and GT-R's in my neighborhood.

Hope that helps.

I've had the 4.10 in my car since I put about 5000 miles on the car..it is fantastic and at this point I have every major bolt on you can do. This and the monoball were the best mod investments I made until I ought the SC.

Good news is that my supercharger from VF just came in today!! I went the more modest route with the 540 as I live in MA and wanted to see the modulation and when I get tired of the 540 I can upgrade and find new love with the car.

Where I live there are not a lot of Ms. A few SC M cars, but not a lot. Went non intercooled because it is not excessively hot during the year. I do have a Audi TTRS that's stage 2 and I do see the difference in the larger intercooler during hotter days. So I am sure I will go that route sooner than Later.

You definitely shift a lot with this gear ratio.. One thing I will say as I regained more top end speed with the 20s.. Not a lot but definitely more than the 19s offered.

Bad news is that it is cold out now so with the M going in for surgery next week, I don't know how much of a review I will be able to do until march or so.

I do hope though that with the addition of the SC, all the STIs, charger/challenger SRTs and and the random GT-Rs I will be able to shake off my tail a little more. Felt so annoyed a few ago with a spirited run and a challenger SRT8 I could not possibly pull away from. And he was driving as possibly close to my bumper it was a little dangerous. I showed him that I may not gain space, I can certainly stop quicker than he can!!!

For any 6MT owner, this is a great investment. Very useful And fun on everyday driving and has made the track a lot more engaging as well.

I will report back once I get the SC and let you know my two cents if interested.
