For better acceleration off the line. It will also feel like you get a significant horsepower increase. Example: For most American made V8 rwd cars (and somenon-V8 rwdcars) you can buy higher or lower gears to put in the rear. example: I believe the stock19905.0 Mustang came with 3.08 gears, you could fairly cheaply upgrade to 3.55,3.73, 4.10, etc....

Thats comparing apples and oranges. Those gears are in the rear differential, not the transmission. Most rwd v8's opt for shift kits and high stall tq converters in their automatics.

If you were a 5spd you could possibly get a gear set for an H22 transmission. There are some higher stall tq converters out there for honda auto's but I've never heard of anyone using one of them.

Differential ratios are a different deal to the trans ratios. There would be relatively little advantage in changing auto trans ratios, though may be a big advantage for manual box (depending on changes to engine power characteristics and possibly race track characteristics). Mods to autos are more likely to centre around the torque converter, and the TC will tend to 'blur' any problems you might get if a gap between ratios is not quite right for the engine characteristics etc. I doubt there would be much of a market for alternative auto trans ratios, there wouldn't be much demand for race applications (though drag racers might have some interest(?)) or for street, so I can't see 'them' bothering to make aftermarket auto trans gear sets.
