As for the tranny its a world class T5 apparently, with these numbers...
(R)2.76 - (1st)2.95 - (2nd)1.94 - (3rd)1.34 - (4th)1.00 - (5th OD)0.63
And my rear is supposed to be 2.73 based off of the car, but when doing some testing with different speeds and the corresponding rpms, then plugging those numbers into different online "Engine RPM Calculators", the numbers only ever worked if I typed in that my rear was 3.73 so now I'm not sure.
You might get some help here
regarding estimating the gear ratio, w/o taking the rear cover off.
But if you have a 2.73 w/a 0.63 OD, you're good to go at Bonneville!
