Does your gearstick go front to back or to the sides too?

when changing gear, if you slow your left hand down when changing gear then the gearchange should become equally slower

no need to thank me

same goes for the steering too

Done
What i mean is i'm changing gear too soon as the engine has plenty of power but i'm having to change to soon. Maybe they just geared like that and i was short on power on old engine so did not notice it.

If you've had an engine that's rather elderly and asthmatic, and now have one that's firing on all cylinders. I can see your logic and would agree that you think you're changing too soon when actually, its just that you're getting there sooner (there are creams for that). The one you'll truly notice it on is first as it's a short gear. Another major one will be the airflow/fuel - new engine won't have the buildups that were there and stifling you.Add to the last point that there's lots of lovely cold air at the moment. Break it down to the base level, just compare it to unladen v full up laden.
