The ratios may be the same but the final drive and primary drive gears are not. 3rd gear on the 06 is slightly lower. You may have to drop a tooth on the rear sprocket to compensate!

Uh, you realize the 2006 has a 5-spd, right? The final drive ratios will be different. Plus, internally, I can't believe the ratios are the same...
