Okay, thanks. That makes sense I think, since the '84 4kq had the (more desirable for some) 3.89 gear ratio, meaning quicker acceleration due to higher rpms for a given mph.
So, how about this for a bastardization/cost savings? Can I put a Type 85 016 in a Type 44, such as an '85-87 4kq tranny in a 200q20v? I realize I would be backdating to a locker diff, but this would give the correct gear ratio I believe.
Would this tranny fit the 200 chassis? *wrings hands*
