It will be comparable gearing to running an automatic with 3.73s. You'll turn higher revs on the highway, and you'll have more off the line acceleration, and first gear will be very quick, but it won't cause any problems as long as you use the correct speedo gear.

If you are running a T5, then there is no change in gearing from an automatic. My comment was for if you are using an M5R2, which is the trans that came in SCs which had 2.73s.
