FPV Gearing

Does anyone have a listing of gear ratios for the Tremec 5 speed? Also, (even better perhaps) does anyone have km/h per 1000rpm figures for GT and Pursuit manuals?

Someone posted a link to a review, (possibly RACV Review??) that had this information although I can't find it while searching.

If that's the NRMA review for the XR8 it only gives top gear 56km/h/1000rpm which I assume is a 3.45:1 diff (or does the XR8 sedan also have a 3.23?????). 3.23 would then give 59.8

These are for the tremec , and the diff ratio is for the xr8 .
As you say , your pursuit may have different diff gearing .

Ratio 1 : 3.35:1
Ratio 2 : 2.00:1
Ratio 3 : 1.32:1
Ratio 4 : 1.00:1
Ratio 5 : 0.68:1
Reverse : 3.38:1
Final Drive Ratio : 3.23:1

Some interesting facts here. The reason I was asking was the moonshot gearing that the Pursuit seems to have.

here's some calcs:

3.23 diff
km/h/1krpm: 1=11.32 2=18.95 3=28.72 4=37.91 5=55.75
max spds@6k: 1=67.9 2=113.7 3=172.3 4=227.5 5=334.5
revs@100km/h: 1790

3.45 diff
km/h/1krpm: 1=10.59 2=17.75 3=26.89 4=35.49 5=52.19
max spds@6k: 1=63.6 2=106.5 3=161.3 4=213.0 5=313.2
revs@100km/h: 1910

3.73 diff
km/h/1krpm: 1=9.80 2=16.41 3=24.87 4=32.83 5=48.28
max spds@6k: 1=58.8 2=98.5 3=149.2 4=197.0 5=289.7
revs@100km/h: 2070

Look at the gap in the 4-5 gear with a 3.23 diff!

Hmmmmmm 334.5km/h in a pursuit thats something i'd like to see in Motor PCOTY :)

"Well, no longer can the Porsche GT3 claim to be the fastest car in the pack, look out on your right side and you will see the Australian Built Pursuit Ute storming past on the autobarn"

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Pete, you can get a 0.74 ratio if you want it. Not such a huge jump from your 0.68, but way more beneficial for a windsor pursuit/T series, as they were 0.61
