    Anybody know how the gear sets are attached to the input/output shafts?

    Are they pressed on or machined from one big chunk?

    By the looks of the FSM. 1st and 2nd gear are cut into the input shaft, then 3rd through 5th are pressed on.

    On the output shaft, 1st through 5th are pressed on, and the final drive gear is cut as once piece with the output shaft. So to change final drive ratio, one would need to have the output shaft and differential ring gear shipped down only.

    Thanks for that!

    I've also heard of swapping a 5th gearset for a 2nd gearset, but switching shafts, and it gives you a taller 5th. Not do-able if 2nd is cut into the shaft though.
