In addition to the lower axle ratio, while you're in there consider changing the differential to a limited slip model. I think your winters in the Netherlands get a lot more snow than Texas ever did, and the LSD will help keep you on the road and mobile.

With a lower axle ratio you might want to consider a new camshaft to move the torque peak further down the Rev range to complement the lower cruising revs.

Really interesting project.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
