iN AS MUCH AS i KNOW from multiple posts on this forum and others, 2007 and 2009 are similar 5 speed and engine is the same J20A. The 6 speed arrived in 2010 . THe 2008-2009 5 speed had a slightly different ratio(longer) for the 5th speed. ANd what is capital is that they all have the same final drive ratio (that is compulsory with AWD to match the rear differential ratio).
Here is a comparison of the 07 and 08 hatch gear ratios:
2007 SX4 Hatch:
First Gear Ratio :)1) 3.55
Second Gear Ratio :)1) 1.90
Third Gear Ratio :)1) 1.31
Fourth Gear Ratio :)1) 0.97
Fifth Gear Ratio :)1) 0.82
Reverse Ratio :)1) 3.25
Final Drive Axle Ratio :)1) 4.41

2008 SX4 Hatch:
First Gear Ratio 3.545
Second Gear Ratio 1.904
Third Gear Ratio 1.310
Fourth Gear Ratio 0.969
Fifth Gear Ratio 0.725
Reverse Gear Ratio 3.250
Final drive ratio 4.41

Others will come with their experience and comment on this. Wait and read.
