Transmission questions

Sounds like the V8 one would work. The most important ratio is the final 
drive. Since you have the 200q rear diff on the car, (and most likely are 
not planning on swapping it as well) the final drive ratio for the front 
wheels must exactly match the ones at the back. The other ratios are icing 
on the cake...
