Many of the turbo guys install 3.63 rear gears out of Australia. That's a minor change from the stock 4.10's. But, it will net you a few MPG's.
While this car is seldom on the highway, I've always thought that even at speeds over 30 mph this car would benefit from "longer legs". As time and money allow that will surely be one mod I'll be looking into.
