Since fitting all the mods on my falcon it now shifts from 1st to 2nd at between 75-80km/hr at wide open throttle inpower mode. Before when it was stock as a rock it would shift between 60-70km/hr with a huge flat spot. The pacemakers seemed to make the car rev out higher in first. Anyone noticed these differences with similar mods.

Cheers Luke.

leave it in economy mode. you'll save fuel with the gears kicking in earlier at a less speed. why are you guys wasting money on high flow cats anyway. :? :shock:

Probably the 16's too.
If you've got a 3.08 diff (which it sounds like) they stretch the already painfully long first gear.

lol my car revs out 1st at about 85-90km/h in noram econ mode, ofcourse as do most barras, xt's that is, i want to put a shorter diff on it, like an xr6 turBRO diff, only bcuz it is shorter and also a limo, whereas the xr6 is a single spinner, but then again, with the price of petrol these days, im jsut gunna leave my car the way it is, next and final thing is going to be a phat system..

Well my AUII goes into second at about 71-73kmh at full throttle.

You can hold it and unlike commomwhores it won't change up and will go to about 90kmh where the rev limiter stops it relatively smoothly compared to a BA V8 too I might add.

that was the foot to floor changes, it'll go further if you hold it in gear. But there's no gain to be made.
