UGH, purchased and installed the wrong gears.

So I was calibrating my machine and I noticed it was moving 50mm in real space for 40mm in the control. After ruling out the steppers, drivers, I noticed that I had 20T gears on my X and Y axis steppers. I have the correct gears in my Amazon cart but I thought I’d ask here first. Would it be difficult to adjust marlin settings to work with the 20T gears? Can I adjust the Steps/mm on X and Y from 200 to 160 (i.e. M92)? Or should I just buy the right gears?

Yes, you just make the adjustment and it will work fine.
