Interesting that they put a tH700 in it, must have really wanted that extra gear

I'd love an extra gear in my V8 Berlina, but am just going to change the diff ratio instead.

Abit friendlier at 100ks and still heaps of torque for taking off

its a calais series 2 style cluster with 6cyl redline

I was going to ask, what revs does an 8 sit on at say 100 / 110?

Standard V8 (Trimatic, 3.08 Diff, 205/65/15 Tires) sits between 2400-2500rpm at 100k's. I changed my Diff to 2.77 gears and it came down 200-300rpm...Good for cruising
