2016 Impreza Sport: Final Drive Swap


I was curious if you could take the CVT final drive (3.7) and switch it out with manual final drive (4.111) (Front and rear of course)

This would make the Impreza launch better off the line. The 1st gear ratio in a manual is 3.454 and 1st gear in the CVT is 3.581

Highway cruising would still be at a lower rpm than the manual. 5th gear in the manual is 0.738 and 6th gear in the CVT is .618
