and the gearing. the 1st and 2nd gears in the 4 speed auto tranny that commodores use are geared in a much more aggresive way.

Samuel, if you ever get the chance, drive a VN auto against an EF auto and you will understand why, despite the superior motor, the VN is slightly quicker to 100. They are a 0-60 car. End of story. After 60, they die in the a**. In gear, they are dreadful, whereas your Falcon in briliant after 60 and respectable in gear.

has anybody done anything to lighten their falcon up by a hundred kilos or so yet? whilst still leaving some goodies in the car? diff ratios really help with take off but change your top end speed.
