Question EL Fairmont and Falcon

Does anyone know what the ratio is in the standard diff fitted to an EL fairmont (sedan) and an EL falcon GLi(wagon)?
Also...wats the best standing start 'procedure' for max accelleration? (without killing my car preferably)

Should be a 3.08 - this has been used on most E-Series base sixes with the auto tranny. For an optimal start, hold the brake pedal and accelerator together (increasing revs without moving) before launching. Don't do it too much on the stock tranny though.
