[BiturboS4] Gear selection

I think it depends on the terrain. If you are on a relatively flat road
or downhill, use the higher gear. If I don't need much out of the
engine, I let the RPMs get down to 2K or lower before downshifting.

What I want to know is this... Has anyone tried to change the final
drive ratio to get wider ratios between gears? I find the 6 speed to be
a little close on the shifts. With an engine like this, I should need
6th until I get crusing on the highway. I find myself in 6th when on
some surface streets.
