I have heard that 1st is a bit short with the 355 rear. What would be a good gear change for first and as well as I am in there 5th. Need to go through tranny as it was towed from N. Cal to Las Vegas.

To do a first gear change, you need to change them all. In a regular T5 the ratio's are as follows: 3.35, 1.94, 1.33, 1.0, .68, a world class or Cobra or early T5 has the 2.95 first gear. As for fifth, I think there are about 2 different ratios including .68, .80. I am not really sure what has to be changed with 5th but I would assume 2 gears. For a first gear change it would be everything inside pertaining to gears, main shaft and counter shaft. Hope this helps. Good Luck with it.

Like Mike says, 1st will cost ya. 5th is in the tailshaft and pretty easy. The .8 is REALLY nice.
