atx or mtx? my mtx would cruise 75 on the highway just over 3K rpms
1st is 3.307 NA diesel 3.307What are the gear ratios on the supercharged diesel g-type box?
idk maybe its just me but i take my engine to 5300-5600 at every shift and ill cruise highway in 4th even 3rd so i have the torque to go around idiots who dont know how to drive in Atlanta. if you have never been to Atlanta, GA we collectively think that the speed limit is a minimum:tup: there is not a day goes by when 80-120mph is not seen heremtx...i get erie when it gets that high haha dont wanna [fizzle] nothing up lol exp. at a cruise
Whats your rim and tire size? I believe that could affect the speedometer reading.what do u guys rpm's sit at on the highway? i drive a '88 GT and at about 60mph or so the rpms are at 3k..that seems rather high to me....anyone agree?
1st is 3.307 NA diesel 3.307
2nd is 1.833 NA diesel 1.833
3rd is 1.161 NA diesel 1.233
4th is 0.861 NA diesel 0.914
5th is 0.680 NA diesel 0.755
with a 4.105 final NA diesel 3.85
I'll edit this with the rest when I dig out the manual for it....done, see above, note that that NA diesel ratios are the same the SOHC F8 petrol engined car.
There is another option.....find the 1G probe V6 manual box and pull the final gears out of it, theyre 3.85 instead of 4.105, that'd mean a drop to about 3k rpms at 120kmh
But I gather theyre a rare as hens teeth.....we never got them here in Oz, but i'd be in the market for the bits if anyone has them lying around......
Thats not quite right, that second column should be supercharged diesel (RF-CX), not F8. I commented that the RF-N G series ratios were the same as the F8 just in case anyone was looking for the gears as the F8 boxes might be easier to find. Also Reverse is 3.166 across the board on all G types AFAIK.Dang it, must spread karma around more.
That's a very interesting, it should go in a faq..
I guess the question then is.. did the RF have a G or H type transmission?
Last I checked, the Kiwi's have a lock on the RF market... if the RF had an H-type, that'd be another option for the H5M owners..
