I don't know what they are but some of them had different 1st ratio.You should be able to find this info on the net somewhere.hey dirtpoor find the toploader 3spd.there alot lighter and will hold up.I've been running one out of a 6 cylinder maverick for about a year and a half.looks tiny inside but hasn't failed yet.My car is about 450 hp.Also is the same length as the 4spd uses the same clutch long as your 4spd wasn't out of a big block.top loader close ratio 1st2.32 2nd 1.69 3rd 1.29 4th 1.0 wide ratio 1st2.78 2nd 1.93 3rd 1.35 4th 1.0 od top loader 3.29 1.84 1.0 .81
