The sixth gear is just for lowering gas millleage on highway. The first five speed are exactly the same ratio and the sixth gear is an overdrive. There is no upgrade in performance.

For 2000$, you need to do A LOT of highway to recover your money...

for sure but if someone was to change the gearing in the dif this would be good for keeping the gaz milage up.
I would be a buyer but not at 2000$

yeah me neither but I am looking into getting a quicker gear ratio so this could be an option to keep good revs and milage for me or others that could be doing the same...

It sounds similar to a bad throwout bearing except you only hear it when the clutch is engaged. There's a few other bearings around there but you can't be 100% sure until you open it up.

id buy it for the novelty to be truly honest. something about pulling it into sixth just feels awesome (driven a couple 6spd pickups, even there its awesome) but like others, not at that price just for the novelty
