Wouldn't that make the gears quicker? Stock gear ratio is 2.92, that set up would make it 2.57.

Your rear tire play a big part in the ratio as well. I run 14/36 with 19-10X9 rear and i am winding out way to quick it feels like i need a 6th gear when I get to the top. I'm switching to 14/38 and see how it does.

so i should just get the 14 front cuz i got a 38 in the back
yes, the bigger the front sprocket the longer the gear will be and the more top end you will have opposite is true for rear (smaller = longer more top). Changing one tooth on the front is the eqivalent of changing three on the back. You can get a front sprocket cheap for under $10 whereas a rear is at least $20+. Without more mods a 14/36 gear would probably make it feel weaker on the bottom. Tire size has alot to do with this as well. What size do you run?
