Who else has done a taller transmission swap?

Just working on my final report for my site about the Blackfly's transmission transplant, and wanted to point to other GS members who have done swaps.

I know Ben and Dax have done automatic to 5-speed conversions.

Has anyone else done a manual swap just to get taller gearing?

OK thanks. So far I know of 3 people who've done manual-manual swaps for taller gears. (Me, Frank & a guy at teamswift.) Geometry put taller tires on his car for a similar effect.

Only if you want to.

(Think I'd be asking about nearby VX's and XFI's if I were making a hit list... )

EDIT: actually, before that hit list I'd have to make a list of people with more parking space than I currently have... and a heated shop...

Why would you want a heated shop? Does it get cold in Canadia or something?

I swaped out the XFi and various other Metros for the taller gearing of the VX, does that count?

Yes, ...I am without

Last two were purchased this week and picked up this morning.

I feel empty.
