Mainly the gear ratios. IMHO

Go here......http://www.tciauto.com/tech_info/gear_ratios.htm

Some folks like the 700 better.......

The 200 came out first.....

True..........but only by 3 %

.067 verus .070 in overdrive











A true 87 SS should have a 200R4 already in it from the factory..........

The disadvantage of the 700R4 is that there is a wide split between 1st and 2nd gears, producing a bigger rpm drop; the ratios are 3.06, 1.63, 1.0, and 0.67. The TH350 has 2.52, 1.52, 1.0. The 200R4 is inbetween at 2.74, 1.57, 1.0, 0.67. Strong 200R4's can be built; that's what's hooked to most Buick GN's.
