3.9 wont be too bad mate, with 3.7 i sit at 2100rpm on the freeway at 100km/h. 3.9's would be mad :)

You're right.. 4th gear in the auto is 0.68 where as 5th in the manual is 0.72 or 0.73 depending on model.

On a side note, 3rd gear in the auto is 1:1 and 4th gear in the manual is 1:1.

What gears did you ask for.. what I mean is they're obviously not stock falcon diff gears.

having a wild guess (im auto) i sit on 2100rpm with 3.7's at 100km/h, so 3.9's would sit at bout 2200 maybe, 2250rpm with an auto.
