Hey Guys, Just wonderin what you all you Auto guys get out of your gear changes when you nail it. I have a 95 XG ute Auto with Power Button on i get 85km out of 1st, 2nd to 3rd @ 130km, and 3rd to 4th @ 170km wth a speed well the speedo said 200km/h, but the needle went past that just a bit, all done on a private road of course :wink: , i know im prolly doin some damage to the old box, but ey gotta find out what she can do, just wonderin what you guys have managed to get, if you have done it. All i have done to the ute is:

Genie Headers
2 1/2 inch sports system
Finer Filter
and was running on PULP fuel.

To me thats sounds not bad but ey :twisted:
Will post some pics of it soon

Cheers,
In2xg

Well i get about the same speeds as you do in each gear, but i cant go past 180 due to limiter. You prob did more damage to your tailshaft then your gearbox.

Yep those speeds sound right. Can Wind 3rd out to 200km/h easily enough though.
