RE: [T3] Need a Rebuilt Transmission...

Ask the tranny builder.  You may want to note what your most 'comfortable'
is in each of the gears.  Once you get your new tranny see if the speed is
same for each gear.  If you have a tachometer then that is much, much better
because you can then see the engine rpm vs. mph.  If it is different then
*know* your gearing is different!  Just make sure you don't change rims or
until the swap is done since it can affect your readings.

I don't have my manuals here at work but if the Type I gearing is different
don't accept it -- demand Type III gearing or go somewhere else.
