	Hi, Andrew (and the rest of you guys!),

	Yes, the ratio is different (4.5 turns vs. 2.75, IIRC), and
it turns a sports car into a bus. Don't do it if you can possibly find
another way out. Trust me! ;>) (I haven't done that conversion, but I have
driven both, and done the opposite one. There is no comparison!)
