Well it is good, but depends on what you want from your car. You could upgrade to 3.9 or 4.11 if you want more acceleration, which means that it will be revving harder at 100kmhr.

That depends on the spec of it....Tickford spec or std Ghia spec.
Tickford spec...3.45:1 LSD
Ghia spec......3.23:1, 4 pinion open centre or optional LSD.

To have your diff rebuilt with new 3.9 or 4.11 gears, I would expect that for a workshop to supply and fit the gears would be anything from $800 to $1500 depending on what else you get done.
