ive heard of people shaving a half second off with gears. you have to keep in mind traction though. lower gears will cause you to loose some traction unless you have sticky tires

Damn you ran 14.2 with 2.73's that's pretty good man. I have heard of people dropping a full second with gears, I would expect at least 1/2 second, could be more, let me know.. I ran a 15.2 with 3.08's and the mods listed below, just got the 4.10's hopeing for mid to low 14's..
