Default tonardo bb trans

Had to fix my tornado tras wouldn't shift now i swaped out the adjuster now also when i had it apart there were no bearings in the caseing and it caused my gears to wear.Now i had 39,42 the gears that were in it were 42,47 will the 39,42 make a difference

you will probably gain more bottom end with that gear combo but i am not 100% certain.

Going to a smaller spur gear will decrease the amount of low end power and give you an increase in the amount of top end (if the engine can provide the necessary rpm's).
