Your first 2 sentences are correct.
The last one you are wrong. Think about it. The Speedo gets it signal from the output shaft of the transmission. You go to a higher gear ratio the output shaft is going to spin faster to go the same speed, thus showing a fast mph.
But he added 33inch tires without a gear change so the Speedo was showing him going slower than he actually was. Now he adding the 456 gears he might be back in the ball park of his actual mph.

I think the 2012+ units get the speed input from the wheel sensors, thus changing the gears has no effect.
