it sounds plausible, the ratios for the SOHC trans are not as tight as the DOHC so in theory you would be able to hold the 2nd gear for longer. the trade off is you wont accelerate quite as fast. my reccomendation is to upgrade your cams and valve springs to allow for higher RPMS rather than modifying your trans.

the rules dont allow engine mods at all not even K&N air filter in stock air box. not suposed to change trans either but who is gonna know! trans is $130 at the boneyard cams and springs probably alot more $$
