Yes the gearing in a 4-speed d/r has a slightly lower first gear BUT it cannot handle the power from the EJ22. This is why people are going with the EA82 d/r 5-speed plus it has better gears for the highway as well...

the 5 speed has a better crawl ration than the 4 speed dr.
the 4 speed dr should be able to handle the same amount of power. as far as my research showed. the gears are the same width, and made out of presumably the same metal 4 or 5 speed.
i have a 4 speed hooked to a 6 cylinder. i have floored it quite a bit now, and it shifts smoother than any 5 speed i have ever touched.
you dont NEED a dual range, but if your goin offroadin, with bigger tires, dual range is the only option.

5spd Dual Range Crawl Ratio: 22.01
4spd Dual Range Crawl Ratio: 20.3
It's rather confusing just looking at tranny gear ratios. The key is that the 5spd has a Low Range gear ratio of 1.592 while the 4spd Low Range gear ratio is 1.462 That minor difference in Low Range more than makes up for the minor difference in tranny gear ratios.
Tranny info was derived from http://www.ultimates...5spd gear ratio
I can not vouch for it's accuracy as JWX copied it from another source so who knows where the data came from. I know JWX wouldnt lie about it or anything but its tough to say where the info came from. Looking at all the info in that thread there is some minor variances in gear ratios based on where the data came from (or what application and/or year).

I copyed these from the board awhile ago
It prolly did come from an FSM originally. Who knows by now :-\

I've got my eye on 4 early legacy's in backyards all along my commute to work through northern NY and VT! I just gotta save $200-$250 or so and get up the nerve to knock on some doors...
